Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

A year ago Posted 24 June 1998 -- a year ago "It's not a bug - it's an erratum," said the Intel rep, keen to get us back on message, following our Xeon delay story yesterday. Sounds like semantic finessing to us. But we'll let that pass. Intel doesn't want to say what the erratumnotbug is, but it does say it will fix it quickly. IDC is more helpful. It says the erratumnotbug causes systems to reboot at random. Our Intel rep was on firmer ground when he pointed out the launch date had not been delayed - the company is holding the launch ra-ra on June 29, complete with three line -whip. This will ensure mass OEM support on the day. Silly old Register. We said the Xeon launch date had been delayed when we should have said the shipping date. But as our Intel rep pointed out, the company has not delayed - and could not have delayed - the volume shipping date -as it does not publicly announce the shipping schedule until launch date. This is Alice in Wonderland logic. IBM, Tiny and Viglen -exhibiting Xeon servers at this week's Networks Telecom 98 - said their shipping plans remained on track, according to Intel. And that mean four-way servers for sale by early autumn. Fiscally, the Xeon erratumnotbug ship slippage is a minor irritation for Intel. PR-wise, it's a pisser. ®
