ANDREW CUOMO GOES AFTER INTEL: “Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo of New York issued a wide-ranging subpoena to the Intel Corporation on Thursday as part of an investigation into whether the company violated federal or state antitrust laws in the way it priced and sold microprocessors.”

Gee, why would a New York Attorney General go after Intel? “’At IBM, we strongly believe that our unique joint development partnership with AMD at East Fishkill, N.Y. is key to overcoming power and heat challenges as the industry reaches near atomic scales,’ said Gary Patton, vice president, technology development at IBM’s Semiconductor Research and Development Center.”

Intel just better not try any “shuck and jive” in response . . . .

UPDATE: A reader emails: “I’d be more impressed if Cuomo went after Spitzer’s lackeys for their obfuscation and stonewalling over their involvement in the Troopergate mess.”
