Wednesday, August 04, 2004Waking up rich and confused!! -Product delays at Microsoft and similar hodups in Intel are reflective of the coming decline of their combined dominance?Like ancient Rome, Microsoft and Intel both seem bogged down with pesky problems on the horizon. Microsoft is trying to incorporate fairly elegant search technology and a dynamic interface into Longhorn. It also wants to expand Windows to accommodate 64-bit software. In addition, teams of engineers are working on game consoles, cell phone software and enhancements for television. Meanwhile, Linux and Google are becoming more prominent in the technology universe. Direct, cutthroat competition is now frowned upon, so new ways of undermining these companies need to be developed.For its part, Intel has delayed a number of server, desktop and notebook projects. Its communications division, meanwhile, continues to lose money, and an effort hatched in 2000 to take on Texas Instruments in cell phones has moved slowly. Last year, Intel tried to milk its flash memory division for more money, but it lost customers instead.
