Transmeta: Intel squeezed IBM to dump us

Author: JT Smith

The Register reports: "IBM's decision to dump its planned Crusoe-based ThinkPad 240
had nothing to do with benchmarks, and everything to do with Intel,
according to sources close to Transmeta. Quanta, which was to
build the machines, was surprised when the project was abruptly
cancelled; one Transmeta partner who declined to be named told
The Register: 'It was on schedule, fully functional, and IBM were very
happy with it.' "
