AMD spends plenty of money on advertising, just not very much TV

Lance Armstrong is sponsored by AMD, AMD also spends $$ on formula 1, cup cars, and quite few other markets/venues

You think that being 18 or over and buying a lottery ticket is wrong? Wait, wait. You're saying there's something wrong with being in the Peace Corps and finding out that your rich father has died and left you his fortune?

Yes, but no sprinkles. For every sprinkle i find, i shall KILL you.

True, but I hardly think that his children could be held responsible for it, even if he did. uzi9mm implied that the person who currently has the money must have done something "illegal or wrong to get it."

That's just bitter and ignorant if you ask me. Oh well, what can you do.

I've only ever seen one advertisement from AMD, it was a full page in the newspaper.
although, if the average person saw it, I don't think they would completely know what AMD does
