Engadget.com text-interviews ARM co-founder John Biggs

Acorn needed more CPU power in its machines. 8-bit was no longer enough, so it was looking at 16-bit. Initially, we asked Intel for samples of their 80286 processor, but they refused. That's funny, because ARM is now perceived as a competitive threat to Intel, and you can trace that all the way back to the seminal moment when they refused to give us those samples. We somewhat arrogantly thought 'we can do this ourselves' and we decided to build our own 32-bit silicon. If Intel had been more generous, Acorn might have built its Archimedes computer around the 80286 processor -- it would have changed the whole landscape.

1. I was on Twit!, I was interviewed by Leo Laporte and Sarah Lane featuring the ARM Powered devices that I use for augmented video-blogging.

2. Techmeme.com CEO Gabe Rivera interview, he runs one of the most influential tech news aggregators, I asked him if he thinks that his algorithms and editors choose too many pro-Apple stories or not.
