Transmeta's wild ride is apparently coming to a end -- having given up the chip game entirely in favor of lucrative patent licensing deals, it sounds like the company's board is tired of being called out by investors and looking to sell off what's left, saying it's a way to "enhance value for all its stockholders." Considering that AMD owns a $7.5M chunk of stock and most of Transmeta's tech is already licensed out to NVIDIA and Intel, those seem like they'd be likely suitors, but you never know with these guys -- we'll see how this all plays out in the end.
