Nice about Andy

A nice and appropriate story about Andy Grove. But for a more "colour full" story I would suggest the book "Inside Intel" described like this:

"Named one of the Best Business Books of 1997 by Business Week, Inside Intel is the gripping business saga of a company that rose to dominance through technological innovation, and maintained its leadership against competitors through aggressive marketing, tough business tactics, and liberal use of legal firepower."

Lots of interesting stuff about their fight against AMD, fights with Bill Gates and their efforts to hide and downgrade a bad bug in one processor, and indeed a very liberal use of legal firepower.

The memory business was simply lost as the Japanese production technique become superior.
