    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

More on Intel Sleeze - Intel ‘undermined’ laptop project

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 11:24 am

From the BBC: Intel ‘undermined’ laptop project

From the article: “‘They would go in even after we had signed contracts and try to persuade government officials to scrap their contract and sign a contract with them instead. That’s not a partnership.’

Mr Negroponte cited an example in Peru where Intel sales staff tried to persuade the country’s vice-minister of education, Oscar Becerra Tresierra, to buy the Intel Classmate PC.

Peru has ordered 270,000 XO laptops from OLPC.

Mr Negroponte said that similar events had happened ‘time and time and time again’.”

And you wonder why I’m becoming an Intel-free shop?
