But I've not heard about Grove being a stickler for work hours. The stories I've heard to that extent have all been fifteen-year-old ones about Barrett: how he'd stand at the top of a stairwell and count the number of employees coming in at 8:01am and later (one assumes he was not standing at the bottom taking a count of those leaving post-5pm as well).
|BTW, is it only technophiles or the media who believe there's a battle for the living room? I'm a skeptic when it comes to convergence:
But it sounds like Intel is betting a big part of the company on it.
Grove talked about the "battle for [consumers'] eyeballs" since the mid-90s, so this isn't anything new for us from a strategic perspective. The tactics have definitely gotten different in recent years, however. I hope we're living in interesting times, but I also hope it's not "interesting" from the Chinese proverbial perspective...
