Google is the last of its trouble for Yahoo! Firings and zero hirings, and take over might be imminent.

Yahoo! as we know it will not exist. With a hiring freeze, employee firings, and critical transition in business strategy looming, the company that helped build the reputation of the Internet/Tech “new market”, has regretfully been relegated to the sideline- along with diminishing influence and market share, resulting in perpetual loss to its close competitors.

LG Electronics will hold hands with giant chip maker Intel. This will be Intel’s first forey into manufacturing smart phones powered by Google’s Android mobile software.

However, an executive from LG (asked not to be identified) simply added, “Personally, I doubt that LG Electronics will release phones running on Android software based on any Intel platform. It’s quite possible for LG to push Intel’s reference mobiles but with huge subsidies from Intel for promotion”.

So, is there another reason why Intel has joined with LG?  Yes. AMD.

“Intel is getting nervous over the growing emergence of AMD, therefore, the partnership with LG will be good for the chipmaker,’’ an executive commented.

AMD Korea doubled its revenue last year, because of its partnership with Samsung, LG’s direct rival.

“Intel is giving out more money to cash-strapped LG Electronics in return for a closer partnership. I still have doubts about the marketability of the upcoming Intel Android phone,’’ said an industry watcher.

Another tech couple, seeking a golden return, while trying to keep their rivals at bay.
