By the early part of next year, with everything else being equal, Intel should be ahead in the dual-processor side. Intel has bigger (fabrication plants where the chips are made), better margins and a better balance sheet. David beat Goliath, but that was a couple thousand years ago. That happens only once. In the real world, that doesn't happen. A one-year lead is not good enough.
The president has listened to some people, the so-called Vulcans in the White House, the ideologues. But you know, unlike the Vulcans of Star Trek who made the decisions based on logic and fact, these guys make it on ideology. These aren't Vulcans. There are Klingons in the White House. But unlike the real Klingons of Star Trek, these Klingons have never fought a battle of their own. Don't let faux Klingons send real Americans to war.
