Brian Krzanich
Intel confirms new CEO will take office May 16

We have known for quite some time that Intel CEO Paul Otellini was set to retire this year. Today, however, Intel voted unanimously to replace outgoing CEO Otellini with new CEO Brian Krzanich.

Kzanich will assume the CEO position at Intel's annual stockholders meeting on May 16. He has been Intel's chief operating officer since January of 2012 and his appointment to CEO makes him the sixth CEO in Intel company history.

“After a thorough and deliberate selection process, the board of directors is delighted that Krzanich will lead Intel as we define and invent the next generation of technology that will shape the future of computing,” said Andy Bryant, chairman of Intel.

“Brian is a strong leader with a passion for technology and deep understanding of the business,” Bryant added. “His track record of execution and strategic leadership, combined with his open-minded approach to problem solving has earned him the respect of employees, customers and partners worldwide. He has the right combination of knowledge, depth and experience to lead the company during this period of rapid technology and industry change.”

Krzanich has been with Intel since 1982.

“I am deeply honored by the opportunity to lead Intel,” said Krzanich. “We have amazing assets, tremendous talent, and an unmatched legacy of innovation and execution. I look forward to working with our leadership team and employees worldwide to continue our proud legacy, while moving even faster into ultra-mobility, to lead Intel into the next era.”

To some extent, this may just be semantics, but I think Intel consistently shows innovation. They just don't always predict future market trends well and don't always focus their efforts in the right places. Then again, who does?

Mobile devices have been the obvious gap. The newest Atoms seem very good in terms of power consumption and performance when compared to ARM SoCs, but I suspect they'll still struggle in that market with cost competitiveness.

Mobile devices like pads still feels like toys.

Ive got a samsung pad that usually when trying to hit next page in forums etc.. it won't click it refuses to work.
ok it might be a few years old and not up to date with latest software but still. its just feels like a stupid toy to use compared to a keyboard and mouse interface.

Lets hope that the workhorses the desktops and workstations stays for some time :)

get an iPad, zoom in on those pesky small "next page" buttons. Tap. It just works.
