Bullish on Intel

I've been doing a little research into Intel as a company, and considering buying shares of their stock. While Intel, like most technology companies, need to spend a large amount of capital expenditure to maintain their competitive advantage, I believe that Intel is not going to disappear any time soon.

Firstly, from personal experience, Intel manufactures a higher-quality product than its main competitor AMD. Secondly, Intel processors can be found in desktop computers, laptops, and some mobile hardware such as netbooks, tablets, phones, etc. Not to mention Intel's data center products. I realize that ARM is a big player in the mobile field, but as the number of smartphone users in the world rises, where do you think the servers are going to come from that provide services to all these smartphones? More data centers, more Intel data center hardware! The internet itself continues to grow quickly, which is another driving force behind the need for more data centers and desktop PCs and laptop PCs. Just take a look at the following infographic, courtesy of www.mbaonline.com:

It's a staggering amount of usage and growth. Apple MacBooks use Intel processors too, so it doesn't matter whether Microsoft or Apple comes out on top in the long run. In addition, every office building in the world is filled with cubicles, each needing a computer. Putting aside the financial fundamentals of Intel for a moment, the intuitive growth prospects alone seem high to me, which is why Intel might be worth investing in.

Liebster Blog Award

I found something that I thought was kind of a cool idea today, my two blogs received what's called the "Liebster Blog Award". A big thank you to Jess at Scrapbooking By Jess. The idea is that it's awarded to blogs with under 200 followers, which then pass the award along to other blogs with under 200 followers.


Here are the rules copy-pasted from the blog that gave me the award:


1. Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who presented you the award .
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Present the Liebster Blog Award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers.
5. Let them know they have been chosen by leaving a comment on their blog.


I've come up with a list of blogs that I find interesting with under 200 followers and decided to pass the award along to them.

Bloody Computer!
