GlobalFoundries rumoured to be sniffing around IBM's fabs

Possible purchase in the offing.

greigaitken has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
You know how people wait in line to buy the latest ipad/xbox/ps4 then smash them in front of the queue of people who didn't get one.
Same thing if intel bought this fab and just turned it into a car park cause it didn't want it anyway. Sends AMD some parking vouchers.

Would the bid include any patents of chip manufacturing and design? I imagine IBM has a million of them considering how prolific they patenting is, and how long they have been in the industry.
