Why hasn't US FTC raided INTEL yet?

Does INTEL own the US government? The Japanese had raided INTEL offices and uncovered a lot of incriminating evidence; the Euorpeans had raided INTEL and DELL offices. Now the Koreans have raided INTEL.

In contrast, the US government is paying $563 million more of tax payers' money by illegally specifying INTEL brand in its computer purchases. This is state sponsored iNTEL monopoly, pure and simple.

If you compare the DOJ's Microsoft case and the AMD's INTEL case, what INTEL has done is 10 times more severe. Why aren't FTC and DOJ doing anything, despite the continuing behaviour such as excluding AMD CPUs from Skype 10-way conference call?

INTEL is using its monopoly power to keep us in the dark age of 32 bit computing.

I think AMD better move to Europe or China and break free from the illegal monopolistic control of the CPU market.

You said that the Europeans had raided INTEL and DELL Offices. I clicked the link but when I read the article, I didn't see Dell in it. :)why?

RAID is a bigg difference from "came in during bus hours". This article clearly mis-represents an ongoing investigation as something more.

I think this is AMD playing games because they know they can't beat Intel in a straight up fight.

I think Intel must be carefull and weigh its actions carefully. When you are the biggest it is easier for critics to attack. (I.E Why does Wal-Mart get all the heat when Target treats its workers the same).

1) The goverment specifying Intel isn't Intel's fault . . . unless you can prove Intel put them up to it. The article does not mention that.

2) I think the Skype deal is BRILLIANT marketing. Intel uses excess cash and pays for companies to upgrade their software to take advantage of their new software. Since they paid the cash the companies updates only work with Intel processors. Consumers see the software boxes that say "Works with Intel XYZ" and feel comfortable. This isn't Anti-Trust!! This is the same as Sony making a HD-TV that has a special port to take advantage of a ps3. . .

sony making crap for sony is different than me (intel) paying off my friend (skype) to say piss of to my enemy(amd). It is "brilliant marketing" but it's not taking advantage of some briliant intel hardware advantage (read: non existant), it's only a way to pin AMD to the wall with their big money. Doom on you Intel, Doom on you.
