AMD and Microsoft

One of the concerns of students today is whether or not they should go into debt to pay for higher education.
The trend of technology suggests that by the time they graduate, new markets will have emerged that require new skills that have yet to reach classrooms.
It was reported today that AMD will layoff 1,770 workers due to decreased PC sales and therefore demand for chip supply. Does this mean that the PC is dead ? It means that AMD has to redesign and innovate to continue being in business and perhaps partner up with the company that makes AMD’s chips so important – Microsoft and the Windows operating software.
