??? If I'm the owner of a company, and I see a need to get my company's products into a particular market, I don't see why I wouldn't use the resources at my disposal to get into that market. In fact, if I didn't use those resources, I'd probably be fired for incompetence.

Moreover, if all that Intel is doing is moving money around, that doesn't guarantee them success. (Sad to say, Nokia is a perfect example here; seeing that they were losing market share to competing products, they abandoned their own internal R&D infrastructure and tried to simply buy their way back into the market...) I would imagine that Intel's success or failure will ultimately depend on their hardware, not on their bank account.
