Remember the NUC? Neither do I
"PC sales won't save it"
That's a shame because they had a nice little kit that could do some desktop work in the form the NUCs. Unfortunately, when I look at a NUC, then the price, then I look at a rPi, I just get 6 rPis and have dollars left over for cases and other sundries. And their IoT kit, Edison, is not all that intriguing. They are lost in mobile, the Atoms are nothing special, NUC is a joke, and Edison is lackluster compared to similarly priced rPi kit. All they have is mid-range and high-end, and big compute, and ARM is coming for them. Might want to think of something more interesting at all ends of the market. x86 is from 1986 already. Where is the new silicon that is hard to break into when you're on the machine? We need secure compute cores, some better respect at the low-end, and then they can have it all. Or not. It's Intel's game to lose. And ARM and AMD are still very viable, more or less. :)
