Hi all,

I'm glad to see Intel and ARM duke it out. This will bring more competition to the field. The more we have competition in tech, the more likely we are to have faster gains in tech.

Take care,

TAIPEI (Reuters) - British chip designer ARM Holdings Plc, which licenses its chip technology to other makers, will take any plan by Intel Corp to make chips for rivals "very seriously," a top executive said on Monday.

Intel said last week it would consider making chips for rivals, a move that might help it gain bigger access to the mobile device realm and pose a threat to ARM's current dominance in the tablet and smartphones sector.
