This is Anna. Anna's in charge of Product Marketing. She's juggling three product launches, two market-research reports, one conference event, and a gaggle of blogs, articles, and white papers. Anna needs help, but she's short of staff and budget.

Surprise! Anna outsourced the research, articles, and product comparisons to Silicon Insider. Now she's on-time and on-budget, and she's getting better information, too. Our industry insiders' insight and balance of technical versus business experience allow Anna and her staff to move ahead with confidence.

Meet Tony. He's dining al desko — again — because he's behind scheule — again.

Tony didn't get a competitive analysis from Silicon Insider. We could have told him, privately and confidentially, how his upcoming product would stack up against the competition. We'd have evaluated his hardware, software, documentation, features, marketing plan, product roll-out... all of it. Our independant, objective, and brutally honest feedback would've saved Tony months of panic-stricken delay.

Maybe next time he'll call Silicon Insider. We'll bring the sandwiches.

Daryl's an expert in finance and investment; Silicon Insider is expert in technology businesses. Between us, we'll keep Daryl and his clients smiling.

A Sale of 32 Bitties

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times… we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way…”   Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Is AMD the best microprocessor maker in the world, or the worst? Is the company more competitive than it's ever been, or about to hit bottom? Are they blazing a trail to success, or on the road to perdition? 

Or the real question: Are you planning to buy AMD chips or aren't you?

Advanced Micro Devices has new management, a new logo, new technology, a new focus on embedded systems, and a new product mix. What they don't have is a lot of money, and money equals time. There isn't a lot of runway left for Big Green to get airborne again.
