hehe - well considering that there was no announcement....

I wonder if we'd ever see IBM buy them out- both companies are doing alot of development in India these days- IBM is making billions there- IBM is also in the process of developing a cheap 32nm process as well that usese the highK medium.

This thread is starting to get quite angry and out of hand...

Though I must say, touche Babrbarossa, touche.

The Inquirer has never made stuff up for their own benefit. And they never miss simple fact checking. Oh, and their stories aren't often full of grammatical and spelling errors and are always well written.

/sarcasm

On a more serious note, my PDA says today is the 10th. Anything interesting happen from AMD?

The only thing from today is AMD Hires Industry Veteran Mike Uhler as Vice President of Accelerated Computing. Maybe this was their big surprise?

That little Mike Uhler tidbit was pretty much common knowledge a week ago, so I doubt that was what they were referring to.

Um I didn't think I was. I wasn't implying that everything he (BALISTX) says is false because of whatever reason but I should have worded it differently and reading it again now it does sound harsh.

Sorry guys I don't have much of a filter from brain to mouth and I have to police myself a little better. I didn't intend any offense.

Well, well ,well Take a couple of days off and the kids are at it again. lol

Sorry guys but I am with BALISTX on this one Inquirer story's are less that reputable, this was one of the reasons that the "Rumor Mill" was created in the beginning to house these types of story's. Not a big deal that it isn't in but it should have been moved.
I try and keep all unfounded news (Rumors) in that section, because without facts well......................

If people would just stop clicking on that garbage craphouse of a lousy site, then it would go away and we wouldn't need to deal with all the useless news and rumors he spits out. Faud=MAJOR LIAR!!!! Anyone that gets kicked off the Enquirer for being a lying sack of poo really should be taken to task. Anyone that believes anything there is just foolish.
