Intel's Sour Grapes Untruth Exposed
In the past few days, we heard Intel execs saying that SeaMicro begged for Intel's acquisition, and Intel was unimpressed. The press, always ignorant, was thrown into confusion and doubt.
Now, SeaMicro's Fred Weber, former CTO of AMD, politely pointed out the truth without directly accusing Intel of lying.
According to a SeaMicro spokesperson, Intel "incorporated features into its roadmap at SeaMicro's request ... organized and facilitated numerous meetings with [SeaMicro] senior executives and participation in its own events, including a joint press conference just over a month ago ... "
But, "at no time did a SeaMicro executive, employee, agent, banker, approach Intel about selling SeaMicro to [Intel]."
It is ironic that AMD is gonna frag Intel with stacks of tightly packed Atoms.
No wonder Roy Read is laughing out loud.
But, if Fred Weber is telling the truth, the way to prove it is to sue Intel for defamation.
