The CEO of the biggest semiconductor outfit in the world said today he would tell UK Chancellor of the Exchequer and any other government minister he might meet that our country was not doing enough for end users and small businesses. Craig Barrett, CEO of Santa Clara based the Intel Corporation (ticker: INTC), told fify journalists that he would be attempting to persuade UK government ministers they could do better by the citizens. Earlier in the day, Barrent showed a slide which seemed to suggest that European companies were lagging behind Intel, itself, in bandwidth.
