AMD CEO Hector Ruiz Flees

AMD CEO Hector Ruiz is out the door. While he drove their burly competition with Intel, he's also responsible for AMD's poor acquisition of ATI and its struggles of late, like losing money for seven straight quarters, leading them to dump their handheld and DTV businesses. Taking over is Dirk Meyers, who's more chip geek than businessman. Maybe that's what they need. [Cnet]
