Intel also shredded evidence, attacked OLPC, bribed, strongarmed partners,
abused control of 'standards' like USB, colluded with Microsoft to sell 'junk
PCs', abused its patents, retaliated, threatened competitors whose prices are
lower, change US laws to harm Americans (Abramoff visas), and went pretty far
to fix the price while moving its workforce to cheaper workforce pools.
Intel is neither good to Europe nor to America. Intel is an abusive,
unaccountable private tyranny. The market thrives in choice, not monarchy that
disregards the law which it co-creates.
