I would love to see Intel succeed in mobile computing like they did with pc industry. competition is always good.

It depends on who is tapped to replace Paul. If the replacement has a mobile-centric view/experience base, watch out ARM world. If it is another of the usual suspects, then ARM world gets a pass.
Personally, I think Intel would be better served if Paul's replacement has a mobile-centric focus. IMO, the future market growth is going to come more from the mobile area than desktop.

Intel makes real processors. ARM chips are just for fun.

Unfortunately today's needs doesn't require Intel's level of processors.
Giving people a device with technology from 2002 and one today. You will see no more than 10% change in productivity in the general population.

Yes, real processors that consume real power. And there is where they are failing in the mobile world: too little and too late for now.
If they dont step up their game a lot they´ll lose the war for sure.
What have they brought up to the market? A Medfield SoC wich can be compared as much to an OMAP4460; and Clover Trail that sucks so much battery that can be used only in tablets.
Both of them with quite crappy GPUs integrated on them...
Compare that to what the ARM vendors are offering right now.

the very reason why monopoly sucks! no new innovation is being made... thats why now, the competition is very healthy... all companies are making big effort to succeed...
intel and windows enjoy its monopoly in PC world... they didnt mind mobile world... and now they are challenge...
intel didnt see that ARM-based chips will be a hit... now they are delayed in mobile chips.... microsoft didnt see that linux android and iOS will be a hit and still thinking that windows mobile is still the "SmartPhone" or "PDA is still in"(but i still think windows mobile is way better than windows phone...but windows phone has some strong points too, the live tiles is a good example), now they are making huge effort with its own OS!
so yeah... good luck to new intel CEO... hope he'll make good effort, huge effort on mobile and tablet too! and that heating, please take a not to that!
