AMD: They're making worse and worse processors, have nothing left to sell off and only get money from console sales.

What is yahoos obsession with having a woman as CEO? Political Correctness is killing their company.

Not just CEOs.

Anderson also says his supervisors, in particular Chief Marketing Officer Kathy Savitt, favored female workers. When Savitt began at Yahoo, top managers in the "Media Org" were less than 20 percent female, the complaint states. Three years later, they were more than 80 percent female.

One thing about AMD sucking now is that its only partially their fault. Back when Intel was at the Netburst arch failure period (more MHz, hotter procs, less performance), they actually paid OEMs like Dell not to use AMD processors in the form of rebates on Intel processors. They gave massive discounts and undercut AMDs chances at snapping up market share. Then Intel got their act together, got the Israeli team responsible for Pentium M which was closer to Pentium 3 than 4 and released the Core arch. At that time, they got the ball again and AMD was left in the dust. I'm concerned what Intel will do to processor prices without a serious competitor in the desktop business segment.

AMD got 1.25 billion out of that, an insanely low sum for the damage it did.

In that same time frame Intel tried to force a change to the lovely RDRAM which they owned a million shares of. Intel also tried to force a change to the lovely IA64 to lock out AMD from mainstream PCs.

And now AMD is out of the desktop market, and there won't be anyone else. Who would put down for that kind of start up cost, when they'd be fighting Intel?

Desktops are dying, so Samsung, ARM and Google/Apple will just pull and end around like Intel/MS did to IBM and mainframes.
