Intel CEO: Okay, Now the Worst Is Behind Us

“The worst is now behind us.”

Intel CEO Paul Otellini, April 14, 2009

otellini_pauljpg-150x150Looks like the worst is once again behind us. In remarks at the Intel Developer Forum on Tuesday, Intel (INTC) CEO Paul Otellini said the PC industry is headed for recovery, albeit slowly. Evidently, chip shipments are stablizing as PC shipments begin to pick up.

“This is an environment where we have had the worst recession in 70 years,” Otellini said. “The market is poised for a resurgence and we will see how 2010 plays out.”

And what, exactly, does that mean? Otellini says that he “personally” is betting that the PC industry sales volume will at least match what we saw in 2008. They’ll wind up “flat to slightly up,” he said.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
