Second, setting aside how much revenue/profit Intel Media generates -- though, with a great product and even better marketing ahead of a presumed pre-holiday 2013 launch, it can likely be significant -- there's a better-than-zero chance that the Huggers' experience influences what the larger Intel does with regards to its ongoing CEO search.
If Intel Media lights a fire with a media-friendly outspoken head such as Huggers and hires from all the big names -- Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Disney (DIS) and others -- why not permeate the rest of the operation with that type of spirit? It's exactly the lift Intel needs to extend its thinking as a technology company, not merely a silicon company caught in the crosshairs of that mobile miss and a weak PC-industry push it probably never should've gotten behind.
