    That's all well and good, but for me, their business model is basically haughty and parasitic. It's like they think they're too good to get their hands dirty, building those dreadful fabs, investing their own money.

    If this doesn't work out for them, what would be the recourse? Perhaps just fire all their engineers, and sue everyone in sight, as in, how do you spell "R-A-M-B-U-S".

    ARM is proof that one can have good intuition and make big bucks hiring engineers, not lawyers and advertisers, having little to none industrial support.I would work for them instead of, let's say, Apple as we were talking about business practices.

    Well, Apple is probably an extreme example, of cult lunacy. Through good times and bad, Intel builds its own fabs, and hires engineers as well.

    Now why wouldn't you want to work for them also?

    I think ARM's ambition is bit wishful, as they aren't really figuring in where the competition really is going, I think with passage of time other competitors will step up their game (to protect their own turf) and they have lot more financial muscle to rain them in. Anyway, next 2-3 years will determine where ARM end up in the longer run.

    Everyone wants to be the dominant player in the mobile PC market but with so much competition in the market, who knows what will happen in the next 5 to 10 years.
