Well, I for one – most certainly won’t be buying any new computers or upgrading this next year. The extra $129.00 a month my healthcare will cost me – will insure I don’t have the discretionary spending to do any of that.

See how I did that?

But no…, Intel WILL NOT license ARM, will not give up on Itanic and will not acquire Nvidia because it is beneath their hubris.

Even the older computer chips are fast enough for most things that a person would want to do. The speed of the computer chips is largely irrelevant. It’s the software that is a big problem.

I tried to buy a new laptop computer, but the software was too confusing. Windows 8 was too difficult to navigate, and then besides, the company that made the computer put their own software underneath Windows and more software on top of Windows. And they didn’t integrate well. The machine went back to the store.

All the growth these days is in ARM chips, not Intel, Intel has too much spare capacity, that’s why they’re not opening a new plant, and why they’ve said they’ll start to make ARM chips too.
