- Question asked by some University guy - "Why are so many companies looking overseas? Is is just cheaper?"
I don't think, but am too lazy to pull all the financials, that the licences from oversease were cheaper than good ole USA ones. I don't think they were easier to do. They certainly made me get up earlier in the morning as to do conference calls with them requires an early start to the day from California. If they were cheaper, it is a matter of a small degree as It didn't lodge in my head.
The panel IBM and Intel folks did answer the question and didn't bring up cost in their answers either.
