Its been a long while since Creative reported a profitable quarter. The last one I think was the US$100 million from Apple patent dispute. This time, Creative should thanks Intel who spend US$20 million for the Zii chip licensing and the bought over of the ZiiLabs UK for US$26 million. Although this is a long awaited relief for Creative but its a short term relief indeed. Creative is still spending on R&D to produce innovating products and there are no potential products in sight. So they are likely to report a loss the next quarter.
Hang in there!
