    By Rob Enderle | 12 September, 2014 23:40

    Intel's executive leadership stepped it up at last week's Intel Developer Forum. I used to do speaker reviews for Intel. After Andrew Grove left, though, poorly prepped speakers, sloppy presentations and missed opportunities defined IDF, with folks changing their presentations right up until they went on stage. Intel found my speaker reviews too critical, so I wasn't asked to continue.

  • The Apple Watch is flirting with feature-bloat, putting sublime simplicity at risk

    By Jon Phillips | 13 March, 2015 02:45

    If I were Tim Cook right now, I wouldn't be worrying about Apple Watch sales potential. Oh, it will sell.

    By Jason Snell | 05 March, 2015 02:48
