    When i read the name Intel i always think of the Danish word "intet" which mean nothing, not that the 2 words pronounce sort if the same, probably just my playful brain which do like to have fun with words.

    simple fact is the us wants it there kind of a backup if china try to take Taiwan and they can put made in the usa on it ..
    wont be cheap to run but they will be getting kickbacks to keep cost down ..
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
