14: S2E14: Fortinet making a home office play, AWS has a new leader, Intel proclaims it is back with a vengeance!?

Fortinet invest in Linksys to focus on securing home office network in a clear play to take advantage of the long term changes due to COVID. Meanwhile at AWS they announced that Tableau CEO, Adam Selipsky, an ex-AWS employee is replacing Andy Jassy. Could this be a sign that AWS is getting ready to spinout or is everyone too busy wondering why someone from the AWS ranks didn’t get the job? In silicon wars Intel announced a 20 billion dollar investment into new foundries in the US and proclaimed it is back with a vengeance. Surprising to us but definitely entertaining as usual!
