Andrew Grove is once again pushing for more plug-in vehicles. The song is similar, but the lyrics are slightly different. Grove is now suggesting that his former company, Intel Corp., make the leap from building microprocessors to manufacturing advanced batteries for plug-in vehicles. Grove is telling the current Intel CEO that building high-tech car batteries is a good way to diversify the compay and to "fill a strategic niche as auto makers shift to production of plug-in electric vehicles."

Back in July, Grove was saying it was a good idea to retrofit tens of millions of old vehicles to hybrid drive. That was before he taught a business class at Stanford on ways to makes electric drive vehicles possible. Sounds like the teacher learned a thing or two in school. Thanks to Andriy for the tip!
