Hooray for Intel's loss -- Intel deserves this for its new DRM features in Sandy Bridge CPUs. If the world were automatically just, Sandy Bridge would fail over and over. But justice does not happen automatically: it is up to us to make Sandy Bridge fail.
Don't buy Sandy Bridge! Email email@example.com and tell him, "Still not buying it!" (We love to see when you do this, so CC or ideally BCC firstname.lastname@example.org on these emails!)
