If Intel really used what the EU claims, I agree with the decision.

Man, if thats true , then yeah they really do deserve a fine like that.
Technology blooms when there is healthy competition.
Shutting out a competitor only stagnates our progression....

"Intel should be liable to compensate the victims of its illegal practices," said Monique Goyens, head of the group. "Consumers have been paying too much for their computers and they should be compensated." Hmmm... maybe we can expect a decline in processor prices? Hmmm... maybe not cause someone is going to have to pay for the $ 1.450.000.000 !!!

Obama seems inclined to do the same in the US.

And I like mr. Gruntshworty cinical remark.... Poor Intel will need money to help them pay the fine. Lets help them with taxpayer money. While we are at it, maybe there is some TARP money left.

Funny how Europe gets so pissed at what has become standard operating procedure in the states. Good thing we have them keeping an eye on things for us.
