178 ES processors worth approximately $84,000. Yeah, I could use that.

To use the oh so fuzzy logic of our pro-pirate friends here: "No crime here.  It’s not stealing since the chips weren’t going to be sold anyhow so they weren’t depriving anyone of any profit."

Being an HP repairman, I had access to bunches of high end parts. The most I did with them was to build my first Intel based PC out of parts scavanged from upgrades, not exactly a crime but those parts were supposed to go back to be recycled.

 What was amazing to me was the guys who lost their jobs over stealing stuff from inventory or by selling their  instruments (we had a couple).

These Intel techs were pulling in say 40K a year and making $5,000 a year on selling chips. BAD BARGAIN any way you look at it. Idiots.

For engineers, they're not too bright.

Most engineers that I know are smart, but lack any real world common sense, as they spend too much time in the labs.
