Intel Pops While Microsoft Falls

Today, Intel popped 2% in early trading before eventually settling into more modest gains. That compares favorably with Microsoft's 0.91% slide on the day. Senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker takes a look at the growing rift between the companies, with both sides now pointing at each other over problems with new Windows 8 PCs and tablets. As Eric says in the preceding video, their relationship looks to continue to drift apart.
