After all the emotion and upheaval at Microsoft recently, (see my previous post..) the news that Intel’s CEO is retiring seems to have spurred another frenzy of speculation..
I don’t think this is justified, as it is – after all – the end of another year, and Otellini probably decided that this was as good a time as any to make the announcement.. And, he isn’t retiring until May 2013, in any case.. The company is doing relatively well, and their major rival – AMD – is in a world of pain, and there seems to be a good selection of able people qualified to take over the helm…
So…. Don’t Panic!
