Texas Instruments recently announced a series of redundancies, as the company is planning to gradually exit the consumer market. But even in ditching the market altogether, TI talent could still spoil the day for the likes of Qualcomm, Samsung and Nvidia.

So the real question here is why the competition isn’t looking to bolster its ranks with some Israeli TI veterans. Or maybe it already is?
