Nvidia lowers revenue forecast for fourth quarter

Company's revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 will decline 40 percent to 50 percent from the third quarter, Nvidia said.

Nvidia this week lowered its fourth-quarter revenue forecast, citing weakness in demand for its products and inventory reductions by channel partners.

The company's revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 will decline 40 percent to 50 percent from the third quarter, Nvidia said in a statement. Nvidia reported third-quarter revenue of US$897.7 million, which could bring revenue for the fourth quarter between $449 million and $538 million.

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters estimated revenue of US$801.94 million for the fourth quarter.

The revision represents a significant drop in year-over-year revenue for Nvidia. For the fourth quarter of 2008, Nvidia reported a record revenue of US$1.20 billion.

Nvidia will report its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings on February 10.

Softening demand for a wide range of products including PCs and consumer electronics is taking a toll on chip companies, research firm Gartner said in December. A number of companies, including Intel and Advanced Micro Devices, have dropped revenue forecasts in recent months.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
