Intel "It was the only moment I heard regret slip into Otellini's voice during the several hours of conversations I had with him. 'The lesson I took away from that was, while we like to speak with data around here, so many times in my career I've ended up making decisions with my gut, and I should have followed my gut,' he said. 'My gut told me to say yes.'" The world would've been a much different place - Apple would have been less dependant on Samsung for its chips, which probably would've meant less money for Samsung to develop its Galaxy business.

Come on, they previously had been dependent on Motorola for the PowerPC, which ended into choosing Intel as their CPU provider. It should have been obvious to choose Intel as well for their mobile offering. Oh, sorry, had they something relevant in that matter 6 years back ? Nope.


Not 6 years back.

But 7 years back, when the negotiations would've occurred, Intel was still producing the XScale series of ARM chips. Had they gotten into the iPhone, Intel would probably not have sold XScale later that year.
