Chipmaker Cashes in Its Chips

Intel reported one awesome quarter, and now there's talk of of economic recovery in IT. Chalk it up to sales of Windows 7 and the Wintel duopoly, but also chalk it up to loosening of purse strings at enterprises globally. Microsoft, for its part, did a gangbuster quarter following Win7's release, and it's still doing well, if OS marketshare numbers like these are to be taken seriously. I'm not sure what it all means, but I know one thing for sure: Even in a recession, we want new and shiny things to make us feel better, and we'll spend a few hundred for them.
