2009 is not far enough in the past for me to trust any company or business again. I left Verizon Wireless in 08 because of their chity business practices. Four years later, (and several class action suits later), they're still up to the same antics that nickeled and dimed me once before. Why should I or anybody believe that Intel is not doing the same thing still?
These type of speculations and desperate efforts to put the two on the same moral level, are leading me to believe that you have something personal against AMD..... Either that or you just REALLY hate to lose an argument.
This is something I always see. When ever one comes to defend Intel, one always get called an AMD hater. I simply commented on several things listed on that website, things I believe no longer bears relevance. I admit it was bad of me to call one an Intel hater, so I will retract that statement. Oh, part of that lawsuit settlement was that Intel and AMD share their CPU designs, whatever that means.
I have nothing personal against AMD. I have used several AMD CPUs in the past, during the time where they are the performance king. I am using a AMD GPU right now. In fact, I have a AMD Brisbane 2.1 GHz siting next to me as a file server. As for why I am using an Intel system right now, it is because Intel gets the job done faster as of right now. The day when AMD surpasses Intel I will simply switch platform again, simple as that. I am simply responding to AMD4ME's challenge of digging some lawsuits. Intel are indeeded more "shady", but AMD isn't completely innocent. Believe me, once you get to the very high chain of a corporate there is always a thing or two about shady business. Nothing major if it didn't hit the news, but it is there. Take Veriozn for example, they engaged in shady business as you said. I can assure you that Sprint does it too, at&t does it too, T-Mobile does it too, and so on. Which is why by the way I say spending money based on moral value is meaningless, because if you think of it that way, then you are supporting these shady practices and supporting China's abusive policy 100%. Might as well just buy who gets the job done better.Edited by trumpet-205 - 4/22/12 at 8:21am
