Intel and Amd coming together - Isn't that like matter and antimatter?

It won't work

Here is what does work>

1. When the END-USER has complete and total control over what is allowed to connect to the Internet

(Firewalls MUST allow the End-User to block ANY incoming or outgoing data BEFORE it is sent)

2. Outlaw ANY software that connects without user authorization

3. Outlaw any Software or Operating System that uses Closed Source in any part of it's code
(If Copyrights don't protect your product, then go sell used cars)

4. Hardware (Intel & AMD) must not connect by itself in a method that cannot be stopped by the End-Users

(That means "ALL" end-users including those who do not understand the security issues involved)

5. When it comes to Security, EVERYONE is your enemy!

Stop assuming that the Government and/or Corporations are here to protect you

EVERYONE and EVERYTHING must be stopped from connecting when the End-User decides it must be so

It is not Microsoft, Intel or the Gov't that can provide security

If they don't understand that final point, see "Used Cars" above for clarification

This should actually be drafted up as a real bill of electronic rights.

I agree with everything BJM has said, however it will never happen which is sad.

Is amd the female or the make in that picture? With the Vishera release maybe AMD is feeling a bit more manly.

Nice. Next, we'll see the "hasveri" architecture with two haswell integer units fused to one single flex-FPU built at 22nm next to and sharing memory with an HD7770 core on an LGAM32011 socket.

By the way, I want to apologize to whoever it was that I blew up on yesterday. If you can't tell, I get a little defensive over my country.

It wasn't me, but I want to point out that having a love of country is a great thing but not if it religiously closes you down from acknowledging all its shortcomings.

I'm not ignoring the shortcomings of America, but I wouldn't call it wrong for anyone to be pissed at someone who called their own country "a corrupt hole".

Not the Wonder Twins! That spells doom for this combo.
