Silicon Valley is the place to shop for the flavor of the day, especially when it comes to hyped-up new technology businesses. But some companies, Intel especially, are known to lose their taste for ongoing risk, losses and market uncertainty.
Examples of high-flying electronic markets Intel has abandoned over the years include mobile processor market, motherboards, the Atom chip.
