Dell Inc., the largest PC manufacturer in the world, is currently facing a losing battle in the post-PC era of smartphones and tablets. The slump in demand for PCs has grown year-on-year and affected first-quarter profit of the company.
Intel Corp. has bet on a faithful employee as it announced that Brian Krzanich was named as chief executive officer. The choice was much predictable, yet analysts hoped for a professional out of the company who would bring fresh ideas and revolutionary changes to Intel which has been struggling due to a slump in demand for PCs. New Intel CEO Brian Krzanich is widely expected to introduce steps aimed at adjusting the company to growing popularity of mobile devices as this electronics segment has not been a main focus of the chipmaker .
It seems that the PC industry is not recovering from the continuing curse as Intel Corp. informed that the second quarter revenue would slump approximately 8 percent. In addition, the world’s largest computer chip maker also intends to cut its current 2013 capital spending as it has been struggling due to intensely growing popularity of the mobile devices. However, Intel Corp. hopes that strong demand for server chips will help it to overcome its ongoing problems.
