Intel CEO: The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Squint Just Slightly

otellini_pauljpg“The worst is now behind us.” Intel (INTC) CEO Paul Otellini made that brave statement back in April. And not a month later, it seems to be proving true.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
