Intel responds to EU's charges

In response to the charges the EU has accused Intel of this week. Intel has come out to make their statements, Their response is pretty much what you'd expect, claiming they think everything is just dandy:

Intel's senior vice president Bruce Sewell strongly defended the firm's position, and said in a statement: "We are confident that the microprocessor market segment is functioning normally and that Intel's conduct has been lawful, pro-competitive and beneficial to consumers."
The issue isn't just with the market now, but with years ago when AMD was struggling to get a foothold. The supposed rebates and other incentives Intel was giving, or conditional contracts for receiving Intel CPUs, are the biggest bones of contention.

AMD also responded in part, reiterating that they think this is a worldwide issue.

Sorry but this appears to be a desperate attempt by AMD. I hate seeing stuff like this by any competitive company. Next it will be ATI accusing Nvidia of the same stuff.....again...IMO if a company works its tail off to produce a good product that is competitive, and shows up on time for the consumers then let them be. They've earned it. Now if Intel is holding half of Europe hostage and forcing them to buy Intel chips or their first born gets thats a different story.
