The role of the information set requirements committee is to make explicit

"Intel has a big bull's-eye on its forehead because everyone is gunning
for it. But they have to be as nimble and aggressive as they were when
they were a small company," Mr. Howe said. "It's easy to be nimble when

$40-billion company."
