  • Majority of U.S. adults say others divulge too much information about themselves online.
  • One-third of U.S. adults are more comfortable sharing information online than in person.
  • One in five U.S. adults admits to sharing false information online.



SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 9, 2012 – According to a recent survey sponsored by Intel Corporation and conducted by Ipsos Observer* on "Mobile Etiquette" and "Digital Sharing," 9 out of 10 American adults believe that people are sharing too much information about themselves online, with nearly half of U.S. adults reporting that they feel overwhelmed by the amount of information shared.


Intel's 2012 "Mobile Etiquette" survey evaluated the current state of mobile manners (compared to previous surveys commissioned by Intel in 2009 and 2011). The survey also examined how U.S. adults share and consume information online and how certain digital sharing behaviors impact culture and relationships.


A 2012 report from the Pew Research Center1 reports that 77 percent of U.S. adults own a laptop or desktop computer, 44 percent own a smartphone and 18 percent own a tablet, with 1 in 10 U.S. adults owning all 3 mobile devices. In addition to owning mobile devices, U.S. adults are spending an increasingly significant amount of time online. Nielsen2 recently reported that 117.6 million people visited the Internet via a mobile device last year. As the availability of mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, netbooks, laptops, Ultrabook systems) increases, a continued awareness of how people use their devices is also on the rise.


One-third of U.S. adults (33 percent) responding to the Intel "Mobile Etiquette" survey said they are more comfortable sharing information online than in person. If it wasn't for the ability to share and consume information online via mobile devices, nearly half of U.S. adults (46 percent) feel they would not know what is happening with their family and friends.


"What it means to be 'digital' is something we are all having to negotiate," said Intel Fellow Dr. Genevieve Bell, director of user interaction and experience at Intel Labs. "As new technologies, devices and services appear, everyone will continue to sort out how all of this will fit into our lives – and how we use these devices and services to connect with others. It has become so much easier to share the small details of our lives with our friends and family, but I think some people are still figuring out the right balance between staying connected and 'over-sharing.'"


"The work we do at Intel, from product development to consumer research, helps us enable the experiences that people will love," Bell continued. "As technology continues to evolve, the ability to create, share and consume information is becoming more and more abundant. The latest Intel 'Mobile Etiquette' survey highlights the fact that people are still grappling with how to balance the benefits of mobile technology with the downsides – this means we all still have those moments of poor mobile manners."


Intel enables the mobile lifestyles that are possible today with products powered by the visibly smart Intel® Core™ processors and the Intel® Atom™ processor family, as well as cloud-based services that allow consumers to create, share and consume content and enjoy amazing digital experiences anytime, anywhere. As an innovator behind the technology powering mobile devices and mobile lifestyles, Intel is on a continued quest to understand consumers' changing mobile usage models, how it impacts consumers' lives, and how technology should evolve in the future. This drives Intel innovation to create the technology experiences that people desire and love.


Key Survey Findings

According to Intel's recent "Mobile Etiquette" survey, an overwhelming majority of U.S. adults (85 percent) share information online, with one-quarter of U.S. adults sharing information at least once a day. Nearly one-quarter of U.S. adults (23 percent) feel they are missing out when they are not able to share or consume information online.


The Intel survey revealed that while digital sharing on mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, netbooks, laptops, and Ultrabook systems) helps us stay connected to others, the tendency to perhaps share too much information can annoy some people. U.S. adults reported the following digital sharing behaviors as top pet peeves: people who constantly complain (59 percent), people who post inappropriate/explicit photos (55 percent), and people who share information that they would consider private (53 percent).


Intel survey respondents stated that they wish people thought more about how others perceive them when reading shared information online, and how this can cause people to form opinions based on a person's online personality and sharing behavior. Four out of 10 U.S. adults reported that they typically choose not to associate with people whose opinions they disagree with online.


More than one-quarter of respondents (27 percent) stated that they are an open book —both in person and online — and that there is very little they would not share online. However, only about half of U.S. adults (51 percent) said that they would feel comfortable if all of their online activity was made public. Perhaps this is because 27 percent of U.S. adults admit to having a different personality online than in person, and 1 in 5 U.S. adults (19 percent) reported that they have shared false information online.


Most U.S. adults (81 percent) believe that mobile manners are becoming worse (compared to 75 percent of U.S. adults surveyed a year ago), and 92 percent of U.S. adults wish people practiced better mobile etiquette in public. As a follow up to Intel's "Mobile Etiquette" surveys in 2009 and 2011, U.S. adults continue to report that the top 3 pet peeves are texting or typing while driving a car (77 percent), talking on a device loudly in a public place (64 percent), and having the volume too loud in a public place (55 percent).


The Emily Post Institute's Take on Manners for a New World

With technology advancements by Intel and other companies making it easier than ever to share content from anywhere and at any time, the recent Intel survey revealed that the majority of U.S. adults (86 percent) agree that social etiquette needs to be updated to include guidelines on "Mobile Etiquette" and "Digital Sharing."


"The Intel survey results clearly show that we love being connected. Sharing and getting together online are integral parts of building and maintaining relationships," explains author and etiquette expert Anna Post of The Emily Post Institute. "But we're still finding our way when it comes to determining the most appropriate behavior in any given situation online. Should I post


a picture of my friend's newborn before she does? Is it acceptable to have 3 different online dating profiles? Does your entire social network want to know what you had for dinner last night? The Intel survey results help us to continue building etiquette guidelines for appropriate online behavior and sharing."

Dividend Increased to 90 cents Per Share on an Annual Basis


SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 7, 2012 – Intel Corporation today announced that its board of directors has approved a 7 percent increase in the quarterly cash dividend to 22.5 cents per share (90 cents per share on an annual basis), beginning with the dividend that will be declared in the third quarter of 2012.


Today's announcement is the third dividend increase in the past 18 months. Intel's dividend has increased every year over the past decade and was recently recognized as Dividend Channel’s ‘Top Dividend Stock of the Nasdaq 100.”


"2012 is expected to be another year of record revenues for Intel, with strong demand in our core business and significant progress in smartphones and other new growth areas,” said Paul Otellini, Intel president and CEO. “This latest dividend increase is one more example of our commitment to return cash to our stockholders as we continue to generate strong cash flow fueled by the global growth of computing.”


Taken together since their inception, Intel's dividends and stock buyback program have returned approximately $112 billion to stockholders.


Risk Factors

  • The above statements and any others in this document that refer to plans and expectations for the second, third and fourth quarters, the year and the future are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "may," "will," "should" and their variations identify forward-looking statements. Statements that refer to or are based on projections, uncertain events or assumptions also identify forward-looking statements. Many factors could affect Intel's actual results, and variances from Intel's current expectations regarding such factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. Intel presently considers the following to be the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the company's expectations.
  • Dividend declarations and the dividend rate are at the discretion of Intel's board of directors, and plans for future dividends may be revised by the board. Intel's dividend program could be affected by changes in Intel's operating results, its capital spending programs, changes in its cash flows and changes in the tax laws, as well as by the level and timing of acquisition and investment activity.
  • Demand could be different from Intel's expectations due to factors including changes in business and economic conditions, including supply constraints and other disruptions affecting customers; customer acceptance of Intel’s and competitors’ products; changes in customer order patterns including order cancellations; and changes in the level of inventory at customers. Uncertainty in global economic and financial conditions poses a risk that consumers and businesses may defer purchases in response to negative financial events, which could negatively affect product demand and other related matters.
  • Intel operates in intensely competitive industries that are characterized by a high percentage of costs that are fixed or difficult to reduce in the short term and product demand that is highly variable and difficult to forecast. Revenue and the gross margin percentage are affected by the timing of Intel product introductions and the demand for and market acceptance of Intel's products; actions taken by Intel's competitors, including product offerings and introductions, marketing programs and pricing pressures and Intel’s response to such actions; and Intel’s ability to respond quickly to technological developments and to incorporate new features into its products.
  • Intel is in the process of transitioning to its next generation of products on 22nm process technology, and there could be execution and timing issues associated with these changes, including products defects and errata and lower than anticipated manufacturing yields.
  • The gross margin percentage could vary significantly from expectations based on capacity utilization; variations in inventory valuation, including variations related to the timing of qualifying products for sale; changes in revenue levels; segment product mix; the timing and execution of the manufacturing ramp and associated costs; start-up costs; excess or obsolete inventory; changes in unit costs; defects or disruptions in the supply of materials or resources; product manufacturing quality/yields; and impairments of long-lived assets, including manufacturing, assembly/test and intangible assets.
  • The tax rate expectation is based on current tax law and current expected income. The tax rate may be affected by the jurisdictions in which profits are determined to be earned and taxed; changes in the estimates of credits, benefits and deductions; the resolution of issues arising from tax audits with various tax authorities, including payment of interest and penalties; and the ability to realize deferred tax assets.
  • Gains or losses from equity securities and interest and other could vary from expectations depending on gains or losses on the sale, exchange, change in the fair value or impairments of debt and equity investments; interest rates; cash balances; and changes in fair value of derivative instruments.
  • The majority of Intel’s non-marketable equity investment portfolio balance is concentrated in companies in the flash memory market segment, and declines in this market segment or changes in management’s plans with respect to Intel’s investments in this market segment could result in significant impairment charges, impacting restructuring charges as well as gains/losses on equity investments and interest and other.
  • Intel's results could be affected by adverse economic, social, political and physical/infrastructure conditions in countries where Intel, its customers or its suppliers operate, including military conflict and other security risks, natural disasters, infrastructure disruptions, health concerns and fluctuations in currency exchange rates.
  • Expenses, particularly certain marketing and compensation expenses, as well as restructuring and asset impairment charges, vary depending on the level of demand for Intel's products and the level of revenue and profits.
  • Intel’s results could be affected by the timing of closing of acquisitions and divestitures.
  • Intel's results could be affected by adverse effects associated with product defects and errata (deviations from published specifications), and by litigation or regulatory matters involving intellectual property, stockholder, consumer, antitrust, disclosure and other issues, such as the litigation and regulatory matters described in Intel's SEC reports. An unfavorable ruling could include monetary damages or an injunction prohibiting Intel from manufacturing or selling one or more products, precluding particular business practices, impacting Intel’s ability to design its products, or requiring other remedies such as compulsory licensing of intellectual property.


A detailed discussion of these and other factors that could affect Intel’s results is included in Intel’s SEC filings, including the company’s latest earnings release, Form 10-Q and Form 10-K.
