Intel to surrender to higher US authorities

The FTC rack is very punishing

A source told The Register this morning that the chances of Camino arriving in May were equivalent to winning in Las Vegas. As Las Vegas slots seem to be controlled by superhuman Quaker IBM S/390 mainframes, we therefore retract our earlier story. With apologies. But with reservations. The law suits initiated by the US Federal Trade Commission will delay all Intel developments when the case starts. If it ever does. Intel will suspend its roadmap, deliver its deliverables to the US Star Chamber, the Federal Trade Commission, bow its head and say: "You know best." -- according to our information, which is normally reliable. Intel has seen its software twin Microsoft being dragged through the courts and it don't want to endure it itself. Such a result would humiliate all concerned and software and chip companies have differing agenda. ®
