The verdict: Did Transmeta try to pull a fast one?

Author: JT Smith

Upside puts Transmeta on trial for unloading bad chips on hardware makers. "Of greatest interest to the court is the issue of intent, for the charges assume a certain
malice of forethought on the part of Transmeta. As one juror noted, 'I'm sure Transmeta did not intend
to foist bad technology on its customers.' The court concurs.
I therefore find Transmeta not guilty of all charges. However, the court will be watching future
products carefully."
