FTC Sues Intel

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission is accusing Intel of using its lofty position in the chip market to freeze out competitors, specifically AMD, and "strengthen its monopoly."

We're just throwing it out there to let you know that the U.S. government vs. technology giant fight is not just a remnant of the '90s and early '00s. It lives on.
