[INQ] Intel faces massive EU censure - report - Page 7  

post #61 of 97
You guys need to stop talking and realize that Intel's lawyers are much, Much, MUCH (much much much) smarter than you will ever be when it comes to the legalities of buying and selling processors.

The plain, cold, hard truth is that if there was ANY chance that Intel wasn't doing something illegal, their lawyers would have proved it.

But they couldn't.

So stop your crying and "Oh Noes! They were only being competitive!!" nonsense.
Intel may have some damn nice processors, but their company ethics suck balls.

End.

The issue was mostly that AMD had no ability to deliver what the OEM's needed, and a few other issues related to AMD's size. Everyone knew that, AMD just saw an opportunity, and a weak court system.
That isn't the issue. They weren't offering rebates to buy Intel CPU, it was a rebate to not buy AMD CPU (or advertise them.)

Okay, so if they does bring Intel to its knees and they go under (in theory), that leaves AMD vs who? So we have an monopoly and people complain about Intel. Same thing if AMD goes under... We would have a true monopoly (if you don't count VIA)...

All I need to know is they still make better CPU's then AMD... And Neelie Kroes can stick one up hers because she's the most uptight idiot someone could ever be.

(She's Dutch, I see her on the news quite sometimes, the speeches are nonsense).

The arguement that monopolies are to protect the consumer and the consumer is happy right now with Intel CPU's is weak IMHO. Companies like Intel that seek a monopoly bait you with a great product, then screw you later on. Do you really think they'll invest as much of their profits into R&D if they have no competition? No, we'll see the market flooded with whatever is cheapest to produce. Do we forget the P4 days? They flooded the market with that trash.

Just take a look at their newest offering, Nehalem. They're talking about making them locked at a certain speed so we can't overclock them. The loss of competition means that they're free to do whatever they want, whether it benefits the consumer or not. Just because their current offerings are the best on the market today doesn't mean we can trust Intel to keep us happy tomorrow.

And what if M$ and Intel decide not to pay. Well EU there goes your economy as you're sent back to the stoneage while Intel and M$ still have the rest of the.. hold on let me say this.. "World" to sell to.
I'm gonna have to virtually slap you back to reality.

The rest of the world cannot afford to buy M$ and Intel products, and if they can the quantities are so small compared to what the North American and European consumers and business buy that they cannot even be compared. Why do you think that piracy is so rampant in Asia and South America? Why do you think all the knock offs come from there? Because they cannot afford to get legitimate or for that matter original products. The 3rd world general population is much more interested in feeding themselves than they are in acquiring M$, Intel's, or any other corporation's products. To think otherwise is downright silly.

After all, if you think what you are saying is right, do you honestly believe that they would put up with anything coming from European courts? Microsoft's head has been on the EU chopping block for years now, and it still is, getting slowly cut off, but they always do what they are told at the end. No consumer == no corporation, not the other way around.
