Amazon gobbles chips firm Annapurna to speed up cloudy data centers

well meaning but ultimately self defeating

Pretty scary

What I see as the most interesting aspect of this acquisition is our friends at AWS have bought in a tonne of semiconductor designers. Whilst they are focussed on networking at the moment, do you honestly think that Dr Vogels has not structurally disassembled his workload and identified functional use-case where an ARM based processor will have a price/perf advantage. If I was Intel right now, I would be a little nervous as if the economics of this work our correctly from a unit cost perspective you can be sure that the chocolate factory will be replicating.
