WSJ: AMD's Meyer lacked vision, ousted accordingly

We thought the story behind former AMD CEO Dirk Meyer's resignation wouldn't be as juicy as that of HP CEO Mark Hurd, but they've actually got something in common -- neither had a visionary strategy for entering the smartphone and tablet markets. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Meyer's hesitation, particularly towards tablets, may have cost him the job, and that the company pressured him into resignation after he showed disinterest in mobile devices at this year's CES. Sounds familiar to us, but we still don't expect any sex scandals or fraudulent reports out of this one.
