Qualcomm Exec Feels ‘Validated’ by Having His Pants Stolen

Qualcomm executives brushed off a question about Apple’s new M1-based Macs during a question-and-answer session at the company’s Snapdragon Summit today, where Qualcomm announced a new flagship smartphone chipset but no upgrades to its year-old chips for PCs.

“We invested early in Windows on Snapdragon, and we’ve been on a journey to build this ecosystem together with Microsoft,” Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon said. “What we have seen in the past month is a broader validation that was the right bet.”

This is like the CEO of an electric motor company whose best model powers a golf cart saying he feels validated by the performance of cars from Tesla.
