Someone registers AMD domain name
But was it Advanced Micro Devices?
A domain name called ADVANCEDMICRODEVICES.COM was registered last week but it is unclear whether AMD itself has taken out the name. Ten days ago, we reported that AMD had registered the name Advanced Micro Devices as a trademark. That is trademark no 75-659234, with the application taken out on the 12th of March last. This domain is registered by one Sanaxay Phommachanh, of Downey, CA, who doesn't sound like one of Atiq Raza's or Dana Krelle's acolytes or lieutenants. We are still waiting to see what AMD does with its domain name ALEREON.COM, which we have confirmation is definitely one of theirs. While AMD has recently re-vamped its Web site, looks like we'll just have to wait to see how it positions the Alereon vs the Celeron… ®
