Basically, I know if I got a job at Intel, they would have to fire me before I quit. I just do not get the mentality behind stuff like this...Stealing to get ahead. How about you come up with original ideas that innovate and move technology forward instead of side-grade...

Why put him in prison? Just give him a fine, it's not like he is a physical threat to society.

They should have just deported him from America, and told him not to come back...

Because stealing is against the law and you deserve to go to prison if you try stealing 200 million to 400 million dollars worth for secrets. I am with the other guy its pretty rediculous he only got 3 years. If someone had stolen, say a $1000 dollars from a bank even without a weapon he would be looking at way more time then that.

LOL Intel, LOL.

Your source is? If Wikipedia, it doesn't provide any shred of evidence supporting the claim that Intel was trying to save $30K a year by hiring him. The article was clearly written by someone who has a strong bias against non-americans taking jobs it seems.
Do you honestly believe Intel can't afford $30K a year on an individual who passed their (sometimes painful) hiring process?

1. If you're going to repeat such statements, please state the source as well at the every least. Someone could easily interpret your statements as racially biased. Remember that this thread is visible to anyone that has internet access. Unless of course, you spoke to the hiring manager who chose this guy and got the information ...

2. If you do believe the wiki article, then sure, have fun. Intel's job market is open for any and everyone to apply to. If they hire a non-American, it doesn't in anyway mean they were trying to save money. With the same (invalid) logic, you could say that if they hire an American, they are being racially biased. Simply accept that people get positions because they were qualified for it and life will be simpler.


OT:
There isn't much companies can do to secure certain data though. What is the guarantee that the senior-most design engineer with full clearance won't leak the information to a rival company and quit right after? None.

I like the fact that AMD promptly fired the man - and according to the FBI, there is no evidence that they had any involvement in the matter.
This is pretty terrible practice though, he has ruined his image forever ... at just 36 years ...
