[TG Daily] Intel Receives Subpoena, Slaps AMD

post #1 of 6

Intel today said that it has received a subpoena related to its business practices “with respect to competition in the microprocessor market” from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The company said that it has been working with the FTC since 2006 and has provided “a considerable amount of information and thousands of documents” since then and will continue to “work cooperatively with the FTC staff.”

Intel said that it believes that its business practices are “well within” U.S. law.

Intel could not help sideswiping AMD in its statement stating that “this industry is fiercely competitive and working is compelling” and that the market will reward companies when they “perform and execute.” If “they falter and under-perform the market responds accordingly,” the manufacturer noted.

IPO(Initial Public Offering). I've done a LOT of thought about this and quite frankly as soon as CorporationXYZ, LLC has one of these, they have gotten too be to be effectively reined in should they start poisoning other companies wells so to speak. Once the company goes public the pressure mounts to perform that cannot be denied, and when that original founder relinquishes control, either through death or retirement, any evil thing can happen.

So, commiting illegal actions (allegedly) to secure product placement in the marketplace is considered "performing and executing"?

So Intel, like most of this board, seems to not understand that this is about when the AMD chips WERE BETTER, FASTER, and CHEAPER?!

No, they understand. I hate when companies play dumb.
