The irony of finding this news item the same day as I hear from friends at Intel that were working in their mobile processor development teams that were axed whole that they were laid off is not lost on me. Intel chose to cede the mobile segment to focus on their "profitable data center business." This should be a warning to all American companies about what happens when you let the politicians taint your businesses with their policies, whether they be surveillance in Europe or trade barriers in Asia. I hope the short term gains in the "war on terror" and the saber rattling and posturing with China are worth losing American dominance across many technical fields including many areas of computing because that's a long term economic hit that will truly hurt. I can't help but think that the Intel strategic move is incredibly short sighted, especially as the company is still highly profitable, but this latest move is even more tragic when you hear the heartbreaking stories about developers who have been working for the company for fourteen years on a H1B visa who have kids and that have grown up in the US not knowing any other life, houses and whole lives that are now jeopardized wih deportation if they do not find another position within 30 days.
