Affected by the outbreak, the beginning of June this year, much calmer than before. The Taipei Computer Show, which was originally held every year in early June, was postponed this year, but they invited a number of manufacturers to bring some news to everyone who was watching the show, for example, Intel’s CEO, Bob Swan, sent a video message, in which he mentioned the new products Intel will release this year, mentioned their efforts for the outbreak, and so on, so many people were impressed by the following sentence:

Of course, this may be what Bob Swan should say at the CEO level, which doesn’t affect the team of engineers who continue to quantify the metrics of their products.

Consumers need quantified performance data, not bragging slides.
