Motherboard shipments expected to fall in 1Q13
     Fri, Jan 04 2013 | 11:15A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As demand is on the decline and the first quarter is traditionally an off-season, own-brand motherboard shipments in the first quarter of 2013 are expected to drop on quarter by 5-10%, according to sources from Taiwan-based motherboard players.

Since Intel does not plan to announce its next-generation Haswell processors until early June, only Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology are expected to see stable shipment performance in the first half of the year, while others may see their shipments seriously impacted.

Intel originally planned to release its Haswell processors at the end of March, with motherboard players expecting the strategy to benefit demand in the second quarter. The delay of the processors has dampened hopes for a recovery in the second quarter.

Intel is set to release several new Haswell processors in early June including Core I7-4770K and Core i5-4670K as well as chipsets including Z87, H87, Q85 and B85 series."

ChannelPro Kicks Elric Phares Out of Motherboards.org?
     Sat, Nov 10 2012 | 4:49A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Very sad news if this is accurate, quoting directly from Techpowerup.com; "Elric Phares, founder of the 20-year old tech publication Motherboards.org learned the hard way not to cut deals with the devil big corporate media houses that promise accelerated growth of your publication in exchange for a share of profits/copyrights. According to a rant posted by Phares on YouTube, Motherboards.org joined the ChannelPro Network three years ago, a deal which typically sees Motherboards.org hand over its revenue-stream management and copyrights to ChannelPro in exchange for site (cosmetic/technical) and business (diversification/partherships) development..." Sigh, since lawyers are likely involved we shall make a point of saying - PCSTATS attempted to confirm these allegations, but as of yet has not received comment from either party, directly confirming or denying anything reported in the Techpowerup.com story.

Hang in there Doc OC...

Apple may have started losing its creativity for innovation
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 1:48P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The sources are also concerned that Apple may have started losing its creativity for innovation since the vendor's recent products did not bring much surprises to consumers except for an upgrade in hardware specifications and if Apple is unable to provide innovations to its products, the company may turn to price cuts to achieve market share, which may affect the profitability of the upstream supply chain players as well. However, so far, Apple still has not yet made any response to the upstream supply chain's demand for the price increase, the sources noted
