Intel Drops 3% Post-Earnings: Is the PC in Trouble?

In the preceding video, senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker takes a look at some points of worry in Intel's earnings, which disappointed investors last night. 

One area Eric focuses in on is quotes from Intel on its conference call, which highlighted PC manufacturer caution around Windows 8 inventory levels. Eric notes that with Windows 8 long being hailed as the catalyst that'll restart PC demand, its troubling to see a lack of optimism along the PC chain itself. 

To see Eric's full thoughts on continuing PC woes in addition to why companies such as Google and Apple could be contributing to weakness in the world's biggest PC market, watch the video.
