Intel overwhelmed by EU complaints

| So many charges, so little time.
| Intel Chairman Craig Barrett appears overwhelmed by a European Union 
| investigation into the company's actions. Earlier this month, European 
| Competition Commission officials busted open Intel offices in Munich, hunting 
| for documents related to alleged price fixing with retailers. That raid added 
| to an existing EC investigation into Intel's business practices.

Intel: doing the dirty on OLPC

,----[ Quote ] 
| Intel’s agreement with the OLPC Foundation included a ‘non disparagement’ 
| clause, under which Intel and One Laptop promised not to criticize each 
| other, according to Nicholas Negroponte in the latest article in the Wall 
| Street Journal.   
| Still Intel tactics have violated that repeatedly to kill OLPC efforts in 
| Nigeria, Libya, Pakistan, India, China and Intel is also still trying to pull 
| those tactics in Mexico, Brazil.  
| This is simply disgracefull of Intel, scandalous.
| But Negroponte has signed an agreement saying that he is not allowed to 
| criticize Intel, so he is not allowed to talk about these shameless tactics 
| even though Intel is the one violating the agreement.  
| So only independant voices on the Internet can get those messages of truth 
| out about Intels tactics. 
| In Nigeria, Intel came and donated 3000 laptops to counter OLPC efforts, then 
| sells 17 thousand Classmates to Nigeria at a loss. 
| Then Microsoft corrupted Nigerian officials with 400 thousand dollars to 
| install Windows XP on those instead of Mandriva Linux.
