Intel Microsoft isn't the only company in the technology industry with a monopoly. Its partner in crime, Intel, has often been accused of monopoly abuse as well, and is currently under scrutiny by the same European Commission who fined Microsoft. Sources have told eWeek (which generally has a good track record) that Intel will indeed be found guilty this week of abusing its monopoly position to stifle the competition.

It is not that the US has anything invested in Intel, it is the fact that the last US administration was in bed with the multi-nationals. We will now see if the Obama administration will be more pro-consumer with their justice department.

Having read that I couldn't help but laugh - you really think that moving the deck chairs around on the titanic is going to the change the dire situation in the US? The only difference between the Republicans and Democrats are a different set of people they're going to sell the country to.
