[News] Documents Revealed Which Show WIntel's Sabotage of $100 Laptop Project

Watch the following video:

OLPC on 60 Minutes


Negroponte says Intel should be "ashamed of itself" 

,----[ Quote ]
| He is furious that Intel's CEO Craig Barrett called the One Laptop a
| gadget. The Negroponte initiative is caught in the middle of a vicious 
| fight between AMD and Intel, he said.


Nicholas Negroponte shows documents proving that Intel is
pressuring certain governments to not sign with OLPC and they also use their
money to prevent mass production of OLPC. It's the same tactic they use to
hurt AND. They engage in price wars that AMD cannot stand. Watch the
references below. They try to get the children 'addicted' to a $3 Windows
bundle. Still driven by greed.

What If Every Child Had A Laptop?

,----[ Quote ]
| Nicholas Negroponte, a professor at MIT, had a dream. In it every
| child on the planet had his own computer. In that way, he figured,
| children from the most impoverished places -- from deserts and 
| jungles and slums could become educated and part of the modernw
| orld. Poor kids would have new possibilities.


Corporate greed hurts children and developing nations. Well done.

| The two companies have a long history of tension over who controls
| the hardware and software direction of the "Wintel standard." Intel
| has said it is supporting both operating systems.


Governments Must Reject Gates' $3 Bid to Addict Next Billion PC Users 

,----[ Quote ]
| "Microsoft's strategy of getting developing nations hooked on its
| software was clearly outlined by Bill Gates almost a decade ago," said
| Con Zymaris, CEO of long-standing open source firm Cybersource. 
| Specifically, Bill Gates, citing China as an example, said:
|   "Although about 3 million computers get sold every year in China, but
|   people don't pay for the software," he said. "Someday they will, though.
|   As long as they are going to steal it, we want them to steal ours.
|   They'll get sort of addicted, and then we'll somehow figure out how to
|   collect sometime in the next decade."[1]


Intel's anti-trust memos started vanishing from the top

,----[ Quote ]
| Chairman Craig Barrett, CEO Paul Otellini and sales chief Sean Maloney

| onto AMD's lawyers who have very serious problems with Intel's
| rather lax document retention policy.
| [...]

Microsoft dirty tricks, part two (Bob Cringely)

,----[ Quote ]
| "So the outside vendor was Hewlett-Packard, one of Microsoft's
| hardware OEMs, which is to say Microsoft's bitch.
| The tape disappearance was blamed on HP, which  accepted the blame,
| and the employees directly involved kept expecting there to be
| repurcussions, especially legal ones.  They expected to be deposed by
| Burst lawyers.  But it never happened.
| This was, for Microsoft, a perfect ending. ..."
