It was around 2009 when I wrote I predicted in a research report that IBM would be out of the chip business within the next 10 years, and I was being polite with that prediction. IBM began selling off pieces of its once great semiconductor group over a decade ago as the company shifted its focus ...

Today, AMD shed a little light on its product strategy with the announcement of new pin-compatible ARM and x86 SoCs in 2015, and new products in 2016 using custom ARM-compatible cores. The future products will be targeting a variety of applications, including server, consumer/client, and embedded applications. In addition, future parts will also be HSA compliant. http://bit.ly/1mvLnCC

ARM reported record revenues and profits despite a slow down in the smart phone market. Some highlights include 26 new licenses including 6 new customers, 150% rise in enterprise applications, and over 2.5b ARM-based units shipped in the quarter. This translates into the success of the ARM silicon partners and the entire ARM ecosystem. Companies like Freescale, MediaTek, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, and Samsung are having success in other markets and applications. http://reut.rs/RLM6lD

Stay away. Although I had a reservation, I was pushed to another hotel, not even a Marriott property, because they were over-booked. I was given no notice or choice. I'm even a Marriott Rewards member. I cannot believe a company would treat its best customers in this manner. Never again Marriott!
