Former And Current Empolyees of Intel support AMD

See FACE Intel. In just a couple days, the membership of that organization will grow by up to 20,000, more than the strength of an infantry division.

This article talks about Intel's way of control.

Anyone notice the writing at Face Intel is very similar to Sharikou's writing style? Compare the grammer and word usage.

The answer is obvious: Sharikou is an army of 20000 clones that were all fired from Intel

It's just obvious to me that many of those Intel "fanboys" are really Intel shareholders. I though only such people would like Intel who's been playing semi-monopoly tricks to rot the market, and only such people would hold such humiliating stance toward layed off Intel employees.

These people (Intel fanboys or shareholders) however have a very complex/mixed feeling about their beloved company. On one hand they believe it is a group of world-class engineers and managers whose achievement is nothing but greatness; on the other hand, they think all those thousands layed-off Intel employees are losers. Well, 20,000 more layoffs mean 20,000 losers currently working at Intel. Wow, isn't that number more than the whole AMD?

Besides, anyone in the industry knows that it's more likely to layoff good workers than bad ones. Intel is definitely not in any good shape; because of it, neither the PC industry is. It is very bad to fall in love with a company one invests in, and at this point Intel is really the least one should 'love'.

FACE Intel is a joke, Dude. Not in the funny 'ha-ha' kind of way... but in the funny 'disgruntled worker' kind of joke way.

Linking pages from there or taking snippets from that website is akin to believing The INQ is an 100% credible source of misinformation.

AMD has only 10K people. I guess Intelers get their punishment for working for the devil.

I'm just not seeing a 20,000 person lay off. If you add up the people that were spun off in sales of weaker business groups to other companies, in addition to the 1,000 managers at all levels fired in July and the 600 or so human resources and staffing personnel released in May (which wasn't really covered in the media or by Sharikou), the total amounts to just over 4,000 people already let go. These does not include the people that were cut in the training departments in August worldwide, which I estimate to be a few hundred more.

I dare say that the people that are going to bear the brunt of any larger scale layoff in the near future will be in marketing and sales division. I concede that there will more than likely be some engineering folks released; however, I'll eat my hat if there are 20,000 engineering job types cut.

I'd also like to add that much was said about HP tossing several thousand folks a few years after the merger with Compaq. Needless to say, they've come full circle after a few tough years and have re-established themselves as a very successful company. I have no doubt that if there is to be a large scale lay off at Intel that the end result will be a lean mean fighting machine that made Intel the successful company it used to be.

Diference is.. Intel is not fussing with another company, nor getting any better technology, nor filling the gaps in their technology
thus what you say cant apply to intel.

I disagree... I dare say that Intel already has better technology. Technology wasn't the win for HP with the acquisition of Compaq; merger the number 2 and 3 companies to become number 1 was the win.

As far as filling in the gaps, there really aren't any in terms of product offering. What Intel needs is orders they had previously lost to AMD. Let's revisit this after both the Q3'06 and Q4'06 earnings are announced.

Let's see, Sharikou, if you have the guts to post the truth:

FACE Intel is led by a guy who was on medical leave for back problems. He then was fired because his claims disability were not real.
He rode a horse into an Intel parking lot a little later to deliver a message. I don't think people with severe back problems should be riding horses. (you can see the pictures of his horseriding adventure right on FACE Intel)

His false medical disability claims were also denied by the State of California, so not only Intel thought he was a pretender:

If Face Intel was run by crooks, why is Intel so afraid of it?

I doubt that Intel is afraid, but if you say so ...
However, nobody wants a bunch of crooks running around spreading lies about you, right?

How about you address the facts, like the guys claims that were dismissed by even the State of California?

I doubt that you will post this, again, but consider it a message to you!

All I read from the page you linked is that Intel ignored this guy's medical need, and fired him.

While the state of California denied his disability claim, that doesn't mean he didn't have a reasonable medical need where his employer should accommodate.

Maybe in your world of Intel only people with disability get medical leave? I pray to God that it won't come true in our world.
