    Good news!

    You know how you search through you pockets looking for a coin for the parking meter and finally find one right at the bottom of your pants pocket and it's got bits of lint on it?, Well the lint represents the $US1.25bn settlement figure.

    The cash will however keep AMD's head above water for a little longer.
