Corporate web sites exist primarily for investor and stockholder
relations and that sort of marketing. (or so the local suits keep
telling me)...If you walk down Wall Street waving a big Intel or
Microsoft flag, everyone will love you.
Meanwhile back at the ranch...they have an Intel-based product linea
and a MIPS-based product line. The intel-based product line isn't
selling, and the MIPS-based one is. Am I being too simplistic about
my interpretation of this?
