BILL SUX

Post by HK-47 » Tue Sep 14, 2004 6:46 pm

I was on the internet recently when i stumbled upon this.

If I tried to explain the story it would suck so i'm going to quote a website.
Time Magazine reports an interesting case of high-tech graffiti. It
seems that a couple of Intel engineers working on the design of a recent
version of the Pentium microprocessor included a message that describes
their feelings about Bill Gates, president of Microsoft, a good corporate
pal of Intel''s.
When a portion of the Pentium chip is examined under a powerful scanning
electron microscope, the phrase "bill sux" is clearly visible, etched into
the surface of the chip.
The "flaw" in the chip was only discovered by accident well after the chip
was released into the market, too late for Intel to prevent the chip from
being used in the manufacture of tens of thousands of PCs.
Intel says that both engineers responsible were former employees of
Motorola, makers of the chips that are the heart of the Apple Macintosh.
Both engineers have since been fired by Intel.
So in short, a few guys at intel added the words Bill Sux to the chip
Need I say anything?
:D :D :D :D

we should start a search for them online, and give them a nice ceremony for their contributions to the technology world.

Ahh I was hoping that someone did do that and it wasnt some cheap Photoshop and internet gossip. Well Atleast I can enjoy the humour of Bill getting a face full of pie.
