>ARM don't sell any devices and cut-throat competition means making money isn't easy for their many licensees.
ARM commoditized their technology, which makes it more widely available cheaper and in greater variety.
Water is a commodity. I can buy 47 different kinds of it at the corner gas station - mostly paying more for water than the gasoline from the pump outside. This despite the fact that at home I buy it by the acre-foot. Neither the water vendors nor the retailer are in danger of going out of business.
Commoditization is not death.
