    Intel and AMD settle legal rows

    US chip maker Intel has agreed to pay rival AMD $1.25bn as part of a deal to settle all outstanding legal disputes between the two companies.

    The two firms said the settlement covered all anti-trust litigation and patent disputes.

    "While the relationship between the two companies has been difficult in the past, this agreement ends the legal disputes," the two firms said.

    AMD's shares jumped by as much as 23% following the announcement.

      No mate.

      I think she served her purpose of seeding markeing links around the interweb, and I am sad to say that whe was probably switched off quietly in her sleep.


      Could have been good...

      Now I've just got to get rid of this guy from the home office...

      Eh? I thought her purpose was recruiting... :blink

      So did I.

      I even had some Intel shirts made up.
      But as I sat here surrounded by packing crates waiting for her to tell me which country I was going to, with the BT van still parked opposite AFTER THREE WEEKS, I've finally had to come to terms with the reality of things.
