Cyrix gets knickers in a twist over pix

Rant follows as Cyrix Japan pulls pix down

For the last couple of days, we have badgered Cyrix to give us some kind of statement about the MII-366 pictures we found on the Web. This is our original story: Hard core multiple Cyrix chips found in cyberspace But despite a stream of phone calls, so far no-one has taken the trouble to call us back. The only official statement we've got out of them is that there's "no news". Excuse us, but as news journalists, please let us be the judge of that. This is news. Meanwhile, NatSemi-Cyrix in Japan has removed the pictures from its own site. You may remember that AMD played this airbrush game when we broke the news that the K6-3 was really the K6-III. Cyrix, of course, may be waiting for CeBIT to show an astonished world something they now know about. But hasn't the US branch of Cyrix realised that we live in a global economy? Answers on a postcard, please. ®
