Default Intel are cheats says Japan

http://www.megagames.com/news/html/h...tinjapan.shtml

The Japan Antimonopoly Council had to get onto Intel for bad business practices.

Basically they cant hang with the competition (AMD of course) and had to think of sly ways to try and out-do them.

Oh yes it just keeps getting better and better for intel

Same thing with Microsoft. But just by us reading a news article that may or may not be slated we don't really know anything. With these massive corporations and all the people that are for them, and all the people that are out to get them, we sitting on the outside really don't know what's going on.

Some monopoly laws are BS. What they call being "illegal", I call good bussiness decisions. Also its not like they forced these manufactors to only buy Intel, they just said hey if you want CPU's from us you got to make an agreement.

"If you do not like, do not buy!"
