Yep, Mikey got it wrong again

Last week the Register published a story headlined Intel's Barrett: I will retire. The story contained factual inaccuracies for which we would like to unreservedly apologise.

The story alleged that CEO Craig Barrett was known internally as "The Ice Man". We now accept that this is entirely wrong and wish to apologise for any distress caused to Mr Barrett and his family.

Had our reporter not been talking to one of his degenerate drinking companions on his mobile phone at the time, Mr Barrett would, of course, been correctly referred to as "That Nice Man", the title used by all 80,000 Intel employees when referring to their esteemed leader.

Reports that - following an unfortunate, misinterpreted off the cuff remark made before several hundred journalists in Moscow - an unnamed large software company now refers to Mr Barrett as "That backstabbing ratbag who'll be first (nah, second after that Penfield Jackson schmuck) against the wall when we take over the World", remain largely unsubstantiated. ®
