Making money - silicon valley style
From start-up PA Semi (with actual hardware) to Apple to start-up Agnilux (with no actual hardware) to Google...Ka-ching! Wish I could have caught that gravy train...I'd most likely be retired by now, living on a beach, sipping Pina Coladas without a care in the world.
I applied at Intrinsity a while back, and see that they too were bought out by Apple.
And now a rumor that even ARM might be acquired by Apple.
Peering into my crystal ball, I see the IP lawyers are the real benefactors down the road as the lawsuits that will arise will go on for years.
