It be awful; Will be very difficult for competitors to differentiate from AMD by using their same CPU's. Most likely the all will switch to something else (only real alternative is Intel). Dell also is known for their little R&D and overall cheap products; witch is also not good if you want bleeding edge AMD preprocessors.
We need comments from a lawyer.
Since when the demandant can confiscate property of the person is accusing? They could plant anything they want. At most hardware should be confiscated by the Feds and be examined by them or a recognized 3rd party.
In short: Do not confuse weather with climate change. weather is a short term event. like this winter. climate is the global trend over a long period of time.

I have some old CD's (still can be read from 10 years ago). In this CD's i have data that was migrated from my and old 8086 XT . Also have lot of file on Zip drives and keep a USB zip drive around for when i need to use them.
From 7 years to now. I been keeping my files on mirrored drives on storage servers (now a applianse that turns disks off if not in use to lower power usage and extend the life of my drives. Should last for a long time as I only use them a few times per week).
It's time to move my data from CD's into the appliance as they are getting close to EOD.
I switched from mythtv to PS3. Surprisingly it can do almost everything you are listing. It even supports playing DiX from a network drive.The one thing that bothers me is Hulu does not list all the shows in PS3 compared to a PC.
