Between Las Vegas and the emirates of the Persian Gulf, we're sure there are Rolls-Royces to be found in the desert all the time. And we don't doubt that, given those locations, one gets torched every so often. There'd probably even be someone in a tuxedo or evening gown running for cover when it happens, too.

Testing new semiconductor products doesn't always have to be boring - or at least not when a chipmaker is run by an ex-motocrosser.
