    Re: EU antitrust regulators accuse Qualcomm of abusing dominance

    After how they dealt with Intel (pitiful fine in comparison to the trillions they made over the period involved)

    What is more shocking is that the damage they did to AMD and other competitiors is worth several times the income they generated. Which company wouldn't be happy at the prospect of dominating a market with no one remotely able to challenge them, it's even worse that they had an inferior product at the time.

    As that may be, it was the stupidity of consumers that allowed the intel issue to happen.

    This Qualcomm issue is a bit different as there is very little between them and the other manufacturers and certainly nothing that an end-user is going to notice.

    Was going to mention in my last post something along those lines. Although Qualcomm are doing well, they still have plenty of competition.
