I was just browsing some stocks, and noticed that TI was valued at about 140 Billion. Then I looked up Intel - valued at about 116 Billion. What? For some reason I had it in my head that Intel was a company that was valued at
3X or 4X what TI was worth....

Can anyone explain the disparity? I think of TI as a company that makes calculators that you don't really need to buy any more (great calculator apps on your phone), and that made my first childhood computer. (TI 99/4a, which had
some great video games) When I think of Intel, I think of a company that makes all sorts of hardware, and is in the news a lot for building huge new manufacturing facilities in Ohio.

Could TI buy up Intel? I'm wondering if it would even want to, given the chance....
