In his Intel Partner Connect keynote, Greg Ernst, vice president of Intel's sales and marketing group, said the memory shortage is over. Could you say a little bit more about that?

First, the demand for non-volatile solid-state disks has been tremendous and there's a lot of people in that market, us and others, providing SSDs and last year there was a constrained environment. We then increased capacity, we put a dedicated fab in place, which is the first time we've had a dedicated media-producing fab since we exited the DRAM business in the mid-80s. That fab that we have is producing memory for us now, so that alleviates some of the constraint we had last year. We are still expecting something like a 60 percent increase in the number of bits shipped year over year, so it's still a staggering number.
