Re: Intel getting out of the motherboard biz.... ......."Don't freak out," pleaded Dallman. "This isn't the end of anything. If you can get people to read the entire announcement, the emphasis is on the importance of the desktop. It is one of our top money-makers. We are taking resources and redeploying them. We are going to be putting a lot of money into new all-in-one [desktop] technology reducing the cost of touch [technology on desktop systems] and bringing new perceptual computing and voice commands to the desktop."
The PC innovation offensive is aimed at getting Intel out of the stale "gray square box" PC business, said Dallman. "At some point in time if that didn't change, if new, exciting formats weren't developed and brought to market, that part of the business would die," he said. "What we are trying to do now is take the resources that we have and use them to develop new innovative products for desktops."
