The world grows up with AMD

Intel's copycat technology has no place for the future. By copying AMD64, HyperTransport and Direct Connect Architecture, Intel was able to significantly reduced its R&D cost and cut its workforce by 25,000. But, Intel is trying to exploit children by offering $399 celeron notebooks that can burn down houses.

Shame on Intelers.

BTW: Intel's copycat technology won't be available until 2H09.

Shame on Intel.

You can help the world's children by purchasing two OLPCes for $399, one for your own, and one for a child elsewhere in the global village. This is much better than spending $400 on one EeePC.

Evil Intel Pumpers! This is the perfect plan of the Golden Path by the God-Emperor Hector!!!

Every laptop is having the processing power of a Phenom at the 4Ghz! It is using the super-hyper transport architecture and the IMC architectures mean that the laptop MAKES the power! Each laptop is in the top 5 supercomputational system!

Evil Intel laptops use the primitive "electricity" ha, this is a lie by Intel and its useless marketing liars! No Intel laptop has ever worked! Every Intel chip ever made has exploded!

K10 is the most available CPU in all of the history. Evil Intel fanboy companies like SUN, IBM, DELL are not allowed to have K10 because Hector is punishing them for blaspheming in selling the Intel. Without AMD there is no computing industry because only AMD cares about the customer choice!

IBM, SUN, DElll will all be BK for being criminals! It is plain to see that when these "companies" fail to ONLY use AMD chips for 100% all functionalities, they are evil. AMD does not need any of these companies because Hector has proclaimed that K10 is amazing. Randy Allen has powerpoints proving the speeditation of K10 so any Intel chips are EVIL!

AMD has 120% marketshare and 900% profits! Intel is an illegal monopoly because they do not do the bidding of Hector!

Choice is good because it means the customers must choose AMD. Any other choice is evil and wrong!

Transmeta Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results

Transmeta Corporation (NASDAQ:TMTA) today announced financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2007, ended September 30, 2007.

Revenue for the third quarter of 2007 was $44,000, which included $43,000 of services revenue and $1,000 of license revenue for royalty payments. This compared with revenue of $171,000 in the second quarter of 2007, which included $146,000 of services revenue and $25,000 of end-of-life product revenue.

All share and per share data included in this press release have been retroactively adjusted to account for the effect of the one-for-20 reverse stock split that the Company effected on August 17, 2007. Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2007 was $12.7 million, or a loss of $1.24 per share, compared with a net loss of $11.5 million, or a loss of $1.15 per share, in the second quarter of 2007. The third quarter of 2007 results included restructuring charges totaling $109,000, non-cash charges of $1.7 million for amortization of intangible assets and non-cash charges of $3.6 million for the beneficial conversion feature of the Series B Preferred Stock sold to AMD in July 2007.

Gross margin for the third quarter of 2007 was 59 percent, compared with a gross margin of 53 percent in the second quarter of 2007.

The Company’s cash, cash equivalents and short term investments at September 30, 2007 totaled $28.6 million, including the approximate $7.0 million in net proceeds that Transmeta received from AMD’s investment in the Company in July 2007, and the approximate $11.6 million in net proceeds that the Company received from its securities offering in September 2007. The Company continues to be debt free.

In October, Transmeta entered into an agreement with Intel Corporation providing for a settlement of all claims between the two companies and for the licensing of the Transmeta patent portfolio to Intel for use in current and future Intel products. The agreement will grant Intel a perpetual non-exclusive license to all Transmeta patents and patent applications, including any patent rights later acquired by Transmeta, now existing or as may be filed during the next ten years. Under the agreement, Transmeta will grant to Intel a non-exclusive paid-up license and transfer technology related to its LongRun and LongRun2 technologies and future improvements. Under the agreement, Intel will covenant not to sue Transmeta for the development and licensing to third parties of Transmeta’s LongRun and LongRun2 technologies. The agreement provides for Intel to make an initial $150 million payment to Transmeta as well as to pay Transmeta an annual license fee of $20 million for each of the next five years.

“During the third quarter, we reinforced our relationship with AMD through the strategic investment that AMD made in Transmeta in July 2007. In addition, we raised about $11.6 million in net proceeds from our securities offering in September 2007 and completed the restructuring program that we started earlier this year,” said Les Crudele, president and CEO. “In October, we resolved our patent litigation with Intel, pursuant to an agreement that provides for Transmeta to receive an initial payment of $150 million and future payments of $20 million per year for each of the next five years. We believe these funds will give us the financial flexibility to execute on our strategy of developing and licensing our intellectual property. Having completed our restructuring, resolved our patent litigation, and taken steps to significantly strengthen our balance sheet, we can now concentrate our attention on developing our technology, building our licensing business, putting the building blocks in place to expand our customer base and creating long-term shareholder value.”

AMD kills children.

OLPC has to be charged by mechanical force.
From physics we know that physical work consumes the organisms energy that needs to be replaced by eating.
No food in Africa => exhausted children cant eat enough => they die at some point in time

You gotta be kidding me. Most of the people that are getting the OLPC don't have houses... and the few that do are made out of mud... so there's no fire risk from an Intel laptop! Is that really AMD's selling point? Our laptops don't burn your house down! So much for performance, price and performance/watt!!!
