If you are Google, though, you can make your own rules, if you want to
But an earlier Times story indicated that Agnilux [recently acquired by
Google] was brewing "some kind of server."
If anyone has the incentive to build a no-frills, low-power chip that
can afford to wait, if necessary, it would be Google.
Data centers may not account for much chip volume, but they sure do

My apologies. You can probably tell that I have painful memories of similar conversations from my time at AMD.
