re: TI Cuts 1,700 Jobs, Exits Mobile Chip Market
Any loss of jobs is never any good regardless of the reason. I think that Texas Instruments will see that the decision they made was a poor one. Also to drop out of the mobile chip market all together will be first on that list. Why in a market that is doing nothing but growing and expected to grow would you exit your niche in that market regardless of how small that niche is. I am sure the 1700 people who are without employment would have like for Texas Instruments to at least put up a fight.
