Keeping the week rolling along with a tech focus today… With tablet growth surging ahead, Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) will look to capitalize on the trend by launching a new set of chips specifically designed for tablets. While a hefty chunk of tablet sales comes from devices running Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iOS and Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Android, Intel’s chips will be more geared towards products running Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows OS. On to Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) – we also consider the impact that Dish Network’s (NASDAQ:DISH) acquisition of Blockbuster could have on the movie rental giant.

Intel’s new “Oak Trail” initiative will seek to capitalize on the growing popularity of tablets. The company will design a new set of chips specifically for tablets, emphasizing features like battery life and HD video.
The chips will be geared towards tablets running Microsoft’s Windows OS, rather than Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android.
Netflix – Forecast of the Day
Dish Network’s acquisition of Blockbuster could alter the landscape for Netflix, which will no longer face a feeble competitor in Blockbuster.
With the backing of a large satellite pay-TV provider, Blockbuster immediately raises its buying power to acquire streaming content. The race to offer the best shows and movies could increase content acquisition costs for Netflix.
