Intel to abandon the motherboard market

Quote:
Intel has announced plans to cease manufacturing own-brand desktop motherboards, exiting the market in order to better concentrate on new form factors like the Next Unit of Computing (NUC) and Ultrabook-derived systems.

When I think of all the Intel Motherboards I've owned...it's a wonder they didn't go broke making them...":O}

Wondering if Intel's tiny "NUC," for "Next Unit of Computing" (@~$185) is a serious effort or simply something to wave in the face of the ARM equipped Raspberry Pi, which is selling like hotcakes, as it should for its $35 price.

I think so... it looks very cool, but very expensive!

Not to mention Playstation 4 is going with AMD... How is Intel planning to keep up with the competition?

You guys seen the 1500 dollar Google glasses? It's basically a heads up display wired to Google "everything". You can join the beta trial...but you have to buy the glasses...

"Want to help us out testing these!? Give me 1500 dollars! That's how sure we are that it will work! We wouldn't charge you to test them if we weren't really really sure! Hey! That's why were testing them!"
