Having so many labor problems, no wonder multinational companies are leaving France on the first sight of trouble. Wipro is an Indian company, the only reason buying overseas hi-tech firm is to learn their technology. After they learn everything, there is no reason keeping the France operation. Wage is much cheaper in India.
I don’t buy into the hype of 3D TV or 3D movies. 3D TV is just a fad that comes and goes. It happens before and history will repeat itself. Forget about the lame 3D TV. Holographic TV is the real holy grail of next generation TV technology.
For a long time, I was wondering the decision of PMC buying Passive, a PON chip maker. Even though the Passive division did not bring in as much revenue as we expected, but it seems it’s the right acquisition after all. If Marvell and Broadcom are trying to get into the same market, it must be a good market to be in. With the Passive acquisition, PMC is ahead in the game and becomes the market leader of the moment.
Why they keep calling it 3D TV? It is really just 2.5D that give you an illusion of 3D but not a true 3D. You can tilt you head and a different image from the other side. I don’t think 3D TV will fly nor 3D movies. It’s just a fad that comes and go. The real breakthrough would be holographic TV that gives a true 3D view.
Another example on why our intellectual properties legal system is broken. It is simply ridiculous that someone found a technology company, sell it to pocket billions of dollars, then sue the new owner infringe his copyright.
Everyone has been speculating for years Google is going to make their own OS. Finally the rumor is confirmed. Now the question is whether the Google OS will fall flat like Android, or would be just Android in disguise?
The previous generation looks up to the stars and have sky as their limit. This generation has put too much focus on Earth and become the prisoner of gravity.
Maybe common sense is not so common, especially in the hi-tech industry. I wonder who makes those blunders, executives with engineering background or executives without engineering background.
