Sounds like a bunch of Green Shoots hype to me. What about the tapped-out American consumer? Who is fueling all these "better than expected" PC sales? Is it about anticipated Windows 7 upgraders? I remember hearing the same rosy predictions about Vista upgraders a couple years ago, and see how that worked out.

Funny thing is I don't seem to recall Otellini saying anything about being on the "brink of collapse" just before the bottom fell out last year. Today's puff is just more pump for the silicon market hucksters... but what do I know?

A lot of people are going to be very surprised when the economy lurches downward. But, hey, the government is telling you everything is fine and rosy, so it must be true, right? After all, we have always been at war with Eastasia.

Maybe stock markets continue spiraling toward Heaven. They've become delinked from the economy -- responding only to monetary stimulus and momentum. It's all a big casino based on nothing.

This is exactly what Jon Stewart was criticizing the financial press about. You're just printing what Otellini says without even first-order analysis. How can you just quote the comparison of a product category to two products that compete in separate, larger categories? It's a false analogy that shows a flawed understanding of products and markets. Frankly a CEO of a major corporation should be ashamed to say that.

Hell, you couldn't even break up his rambling comments into separate concise stories. The second half of this piece isn't related to the title at all.
