Bad move

In reply to Brian R. Hook
As someone who works for a semiconductor company I feel Apple would be crazy to purchase AMD. Why own an expensive Fab that is second tier to Intel, requires billions of $ per year to keep running and must sell chips to many more customers than Apple. Moreover, AMD's fabs run on lower profit margins than Apple currently enjoys with their products this would hurt the PE ratio of Apple's stock. Apple would be best served to use AMD as a leverage against Intel in negotiations, not to purchase the whole dang company.

Has technology made transportation more or less safe?
Traveling by all modes of transportation has become riskier with each passing year.
In general, transportation safety has been improving steadily, despite some failures.
Some modes of transportation have been improving while others have become less safe.
We may have reached a tipping point where more tech means less safety.
Don't blame the tech -- greedy companies haven't done adequate testing.
Government regulators have not been playing a strong enough oversight role.
