The time has come for Paul Otellini to step aside and make way for new blood. Serving as only the fifth Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in Intel's history, the 45-year-old face of the world's largest semiconductor company said several months ago that he planned on retiring in May 2013, so now there will be a sixth CEO. His name is Brian Krzanich.

Intel Chief Paul Otellini recently announced that he plans to retire from chipzilla in May 2013, which leaves the world's largest semiconductor player plenty of time for find a replacement. Who will it be? That's the big question that nobody knows the answer to, though Otellini did indicate that it's likely to be someone who already works for Intel.

Do you think that Intel, the world's largest chip maker, might have somewhat of a vested interest in Windows? You better believe it, and so it's pretty scary that Intel's Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Paul Otellini, isn't feeling the vibe from Windows 8. As far as Otellini is reportedly concerned, Windows 8 is not a finished product. Citing an un-named source who attended an Intel event in Taiwan, Bloomberg says Otellini told employees during a private meeting that Windows 8 needs improvement and is being released before its really ready.

If we're going by market share numbers alone, then Intel rules the desktop world, and all but owns the netbook and nettop landscapes. But when it comes to mobile handheld devices like smartphones and tablets, well, ARM is the one flexing its muscle. It's no secret that Intel wants to make its presence known in this space, but how can it compete with an already established platform that's kicking tail and taking names? Simply put, Intel's off to the races with an expedited Atom roadmap. The Santa Clara chip maker pretty much put the world on notice that it's coming, and in a big way. "We decided,... Read more...
In a bid for attention (and money) from high tech couch potatoes, Google TV might be launching sooner than you think. According to comments made by Intel CEO Paul Otellini, Google TV devices will "start shipping this month," though it's not entirely clear if he meant consumers will actually be able to purchase these devices this month or if hardware vendors are starting to shuttle their devices to retail partners. Either way, Google TV is coming and things are starting to heat up in the living room. Apple recently unveiled its refreshed Apple TV platform, which mainly consists of a $99 set-top... Read more...
