Intelligent flash storage arrays

Intel is hiring a stack of people at its Porland and Sacramento fabs but if you're hooked to anything at all, forget it and leave your resume on your hard drive. "Intel supports a drug-free workplace and requires that all offers of employment be contingent on satisfactory pre-employment drug test results," the job ads specify. There's a reason for this. If you're in the slightest bit sniffy, you'll be sent home from the fabs immediately in case you pollute the wafers. And if you're drunk in charge of a chip, you might spill poisonous liquids over yourself and ruin a $700 bunny suit. The ads do not specify whether or not headache cures are considered to be drugs or not. ®
