Demand for software and hardware slows.

As technology companies are feeling the full brunt of the global economic crisis, as demand for software and hardware slows.
The chip maker expects fourth-quarter revenue of $8.2 billion, down 20% compared to the previous quarter. Intel revised its fourth-quarter expectations ahead of its scheduled earnings announcement on Jan. 15.
Intel said it will take a much higher loss on other equity investments than it expected. The company will note a noncash charge in the fourth quarter of $950 million related to its investment in Clearwire Corp., which has a WiMax mobile broadband network.

Intel was one of five companies that invested $3.2 billion last year in Clearwire along with Google, Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks.

Clearwire's stock hit a peak of more than $17 per share in February 2008, but has steadily fallen. It traded Wednesday around $5.09 a share.

Overall, Intel expects to lose between $1.1 billion and $1.2 billion on equity investments rather than the $50 million it previously expected to lose.
