“Has Intel Been Buying Ryarc IP?” we wrote in a short post back in October 2012 and it seems we were probably correct.
Latest rumour is actually more of a fact (or series of facts)…
- the Intel-Ryarc partnership is a done deal
- it is indeed an IP acquisition, where the software has been licensed to Intel
- Ryarc remains as a standalone company and is free to do what they want with their CMS, whilst Intel gets access to the source code and is also free to do what they want with the IP
It’s all rather strange. Intel is making weird decisions and / or is getting incredibly bad advice.
If you are surprised that nothing has been officially announced yet, don’t be – it’s typical Intel and it’s not likely either that they are keeping any announcements for next week’s #NRF.
