Re: Conspiracy theory No. 1
Couldn't agree more. Someone political has threatened had a word with ARM over what might happen to anything using their designs if they continue to supply China companies with licenses.
The word was had with Softbank, rather? Regardless how you look at it, ARM is worse off than before, I can't imagine them being so eager on their own, it probably was forced on them...
