I’m instituting a new feature here at Channeling Design – the baggage check*: calling out people who make over-reaching statements about business or technology.

Intel Senior VP Renee James, Intel Developers Conference, May 2011:

“On ARM, there’ll be the new experience, which is very specifically around the mobile experience, specifically around tablet and some limited clamshell, with no legacy OS … Our competitors will not be running legacy applications. Not now, not ever [emphasis mine],” said James, referring to rival chip manufacturers that use ARM’s SoC design.”

I’m sure that similar statements were made by VPs of Roman marble quarries during the early stages of the Concrete Revolution.


* Yes, this is my version of John Gruber’s “claim chowder” list. I bow to the master.
