No doubt this is clearly bad news for Intel in the short run, but this news is blessing in disguise for Intel because it has been trying to build a business in the emerging category of ultrabook computers or ultrathins, which do not use hard drives.

@Barbara, Last week heavy flooding caused chaos in Philippines. Will it also have an impact on the semiconductor industry ?

The flooding also causes Intel to lose 1 billion on harddisk shortage.

Another update--Intel has lowered its Q4 expectations, citing the flooding in Thailand as a direct cause.

@Ariella, it's funny you put it that way, I tend to be a realist, though I am rather optimistic when it comes to somethings.

True, these stats are more practical and realistic. Companies are getting more conservative in there forecasts.

mfb: the report does talk a bit about the supply chain's ability to invest in technology to drive better efficiencies. That spending is limited, although there are low-cost alternatives out there such as the cloud. There will be spending in Japan and Thailand as companies rebuild after the disasters.

I am wondering if people are undestimating the possibility of Internet and telecom technology for improving supply chain, cutting costs and make profit better, even in a critical financial condition we are experiencing right now. I could agree with the up/down trend, but I am not 100% convinced corporations are implementing innovation for their internal processes, for example. And it is a matter not stricly related to crisis, it is the way to manage and lead the industry. Maybe positive or negative perspective could be overtaken just by adopting the innovation attitude.
