Intel met recordcijfers
Als we kijken naar de motor van de ICT en dat is nog steeds Intel, dan gaat het best goed. Intel rapporteerde recordcijfers qua winst en omzet. 3,1 miljard meer omzet (nu 14,2 miljard dollar afgelopen 2011Q3 kwartaal) dankzij groeiende PC en datacenter-omzet en men gaat weer 10 miljard aan aandelen terugkopen. Van een crisis in de ICT is dus in ieder geval bij de grootste chipsbakker niets te merken.
