The Week Ending Jan. 12
Topping this week’s roundup of those having a rough week is Intel, which continued to deal with Spectre and Meltdown fallout – including during CEO Brian Krzanich’s keynote speech at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show.
Also making the list this week was CES itself, including show organizers, exhibitors and attendees who had to contend with a power outage at the event; employees at IBM Global Technology Services who face the possibility of “redeployment;” Huawei, which didn’t get the support that it was counting on for its new smartphone from U.S. telecommunications carriers; and Lenovo’s big drop in PC sales in the U.S.
Not everyone in the IT industry was having a rough go of it this week. For a rundown of companies that made smart decisions, executed savvy strategic moves – or just had good luck – check out this week’s 5 Companies That Came To Win roundup.
