Re: Rumor tired to sell
Majority of ST's STB/gateway staff is actually _outside_ of France, not that it matters to rumor mongers.

Will STMicro sell the STB IC biz?
Interesting, Mari. By reassigning staff, STMicro positions itself to sell the unit -- still a solid No. 2 in its market -- for more than chump change. -- Brian Santo

Rumor tired to sell
I heard a rumor back at CES that STM was essentially trying to give away this business, offering it up for $1 to anyone who would take it. French labor laws being what they are, however, they couldn't find a buyer willing to take on the personnel expense.

Will STMicro sell the STB IC biz? STMicro's response:
I asked STMicro 1) to verify that the company would continue to support existing customers, 2) if the company has any plans to sell the set-top IC business, and 3)  if the company has revealed a customer list. Below is the written response from a spokesperson for the company. -- Brian Santo

"Brian, we will continue to support existing business with existing customers. No new product developments and no customer lists we would share."
