    this makes it how many quarters in a row that they have made record profits as a company? incredible!

    from the WSJ

    The Santa Clara, Calif., microprocessor maker said its fourth-quarter gains—which included a 48% jump in profit and an 8.4% increase in revenue—were driven largely by sales of server systems to companies trying to keep up with the growth of the Internet. Revenue from such data-center customers rose 15%, Intel said, though revenue from its desktop and laptop PC group was the same as a year ago.

    I wonder how much and how fast Fusion is going to eat away Intel's Atom market share.

    Eh? That's not something you'd usually put in a keynote. Intel, what are you up to?

    2010 will be the last best year in Intel's history if they don't act fast for the mobile market...

    Intel is buying McAfee for like $6 Billion or so I believe. I don't think that has gone through yet, being subject to regulatory approval, so perhaps they were just letting investors know these figures don't include soon-to-be acquisition.

    Maybe there is another surprise in store for the tech community?

    I don;t know where Intel have been but they must surely know the performance of McAfee as is.
    McAfee must have thrown in something else besides their anti virus to make Intel interested in purchasing them for 6 Billion....

    their software is total SH@! but they're a major player in the corporate world providing total security solutions (AV+Firewall+PC control and monitoring). They're basically second after Symantec.
