Intel is spending $2 billion to re-brand itself as a consumer electronics company because the future is in being cheaper, not faster. The next big consumer market will be a network computing appliance. When it hits anyone's processor can be used and Intel will be $2 billion behind.

Robert: A slight grammatical error. No offense, as I think your column is fantastically insightful. You wrote: "When it hits anyone's processor..." Who is going to be hitting my processor? Thor with his giant hammer? I think you meant: "When it hits, anyone's processor..." Brad
