Intel, Microsoft team up to pollute the world

Cars are worse than people smoking tabs

Evidence is mounting that the unholy alliance of Microsoft and Intel is causing severe pollution on the planet. Those facts emerged as both Microsoft and Intel re-iterated their plans for computers in cars. A senior scientist told The Register today: "Cars, if they use diesel or petrol, emit more fumes than even the average journalist on 40 a day". Both Intel and Microsoft are committed to putting their technology into automobiles. Indeed, sometimes they openly flout their pro-environmental claims. A representative from Intel said last week: "I live near Stratford upon Avon and it only takes me 50 minutes to get to Swindon." A swift calculation shows that the motor vehicle must be overclocked for that journey, using motorways constructed. Some journalists, too, have fallen victim to the Wintel car obsession. One said: "I have bought six Citroens in the last year, what's wrong with that?" Most of the United Kingdom was covered in fog this morning as evidence of the secret Wintel plot. But others were chopping up logs as the fossil fuel ran out. ®
