AMD’s new CEO bobs, weaves, says ‘big’ and ‘fast’ are good

The Register

Rik Myslewski reports that the new CEO dodged questions on his first day.

“Zero! That is how many times I have seen a reset on ANY Windows Phone 7 device that I have been using in over a year. During that time I have used at least six WP7 devices on all four wireless carriers.
