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.

Thom, of all the things to extrapolate, an anti-Samsung "Wouldn't the world be a better place without it" point rather than "What would Apple's iPhone have actually been like with Intel chips?" speculation.. Did you have a bad K-Pop experience or something? ^^

You're the one who said "better place"... Thom merely said "different".

Well, maybe Thom wants to say what kind of 'different' he meant, then. Not a million miles away I still suspect from Samsung being in a less advantageous position, given the imagined 'consequences' if it hadn't been able to develop its Galaxy range.

My point still stands; from a very long and wide-ranging interview, this bit of *extrapolation*, not so much regarding Intel itself but rather Samsung, is offered as part of the blurb for the article.

Would Thom himself care to unpack what stood behind the statement?
