Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

The US Department of Justice (DoJ) is referring all enquiries about alleged antitrust activity to the FTC. And it is being extraordinarily helpful in its advice for complainants, providing US citizens with email addresses and phone numbers. One reader got the following response from the DoJ, when he emailed their complaint line about behaviour he felt needed investigation. It said: "Thank you for contacting the Antitrust Division. Please redirect this complaint to the FTC. They have dealt with Intel in the past and I am sure would be interested in hearing your complaint. Their website is here. Also, you might want to try and call the following people: William J. Baer, at the Bureau of Competition on 202-326-2932 and/or Willard K. Tom, Bureau of Competition on 202-326-2786." But the FTC is obviously deluged with complaints. The message he received back said: " This will acknowledge receipt of your e-mail at the FTC's Bureau of Competition. We will forward your message to the persons in the Bureau who work most closely with the issues that you have identified, so that they can consider the information you have given us. Due to the volume of mail that we receive, however, we may not be able to provide you with an individualized response to your message. "We have found that comments and questions from the public are an important source of information about the state of competition in the marketplace. Thank you very much for taking the time to write us." So if US citizens really do want to complain about Intel, that's the way to do it. ®
