"Questionable practices" lol. The entire market was skewed in their favor through their various schemes. Thats pretty much a criminal act in my book.
But don't listen to me:
“Intel has engaged in a deliberate campaign to hamstring competitive threats to its monopoly,”
said Richard A. Feinstein, Director of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition
. “It’s been running roughshod over the principles of fair play and the laws protecting competition on the merits. The Commission’s action today seeks to remedy the damage that Intel has done to competition, innovation, and, ultimately, the American consumer.
