    Damn it, I need to turn my computer on. If the man wants $5B, someone give him $5B. :)

    Assuming this is real, I kind of hope he does go to AMD...

    But seriously, what?

    This guy gave steve jobs some stuff to show intel.
    This guy also submitted the stuff to Intel and Intel rejected his submission but Intel went ahead and used the feature. But the prisoner says he is the only one that knows how to turn the feature on.

    I think

    Sir Lancelot Young made a motherboard that viruses don't like and capable of virtualisation and showed it to the round table of Apple at infinite loop. Inifinite loop threw it in a lake because they weren't interested which shattered Sir Lancelot Young and he send himself into exile. But the lady in the lake gave the motherboard to Sir Otellini of Intel who produced it on mass, sold it back to the knights of Apple of infinite who in turn made a profit and built up an entire kingdom! Sir Young returned from exile and challenged the kings of the Intel and Apple kingdoms for what he perceives as his rightful throne and to be continued......

    Here's why I think it could possibly be true. He's made a pretty big threat in that letter. If it's a bluff, he may have ruined his life. Also he made a pretty big claim, that they "do not know how to turn it on."

    Here's why I think it's probably false. First, he's only suing for 5 billion. If he can prove that he invented the chips, he could sue for LOADS more.
    Second, according to the thread title he was in prison. It's not very often that someone who has the ability to supposedly invent such great chips is also the type to go to prison.
    Third, he didn't ask very much from steve.
    Finally, the evidence presented is from 2006. With the information given, it sure took him awhile to get around to suing them.

    Wow. I just started loling all over the place!
    This doesn't seem real. And I much prefer him to give it to AMD.

    Sure, the guy's insane.

    Hahaha, already done that. He's in PRISON!


    Also, just so everyone understands the Romans bit. It reads:
    I'm guessing the important bit is "through the law comes knowledge of sin."

    ok lets be serious for a moment though. Depending on what he did, it still can't be as life ruining as getting called on this potential bluff.

    Murdering someone is pretty life ruining. Heck, being convicted of a sexual crime is even worse now that everyone can know what you did.

    Um, k.

    If he does prove and Intel doesn't I will certainly left with my mouth literally to the ground and then after a minute of awe I will roll on the ground laughing how Intel lost it. BTW, I will be very very surprised.

    If he does go to AMD, I will be even more glad. That will force Intel to roll out even more aggressive technologies.

    Instead of sending his idea to Steve Jobs he should have sent it to the US Patent Office and obtained a patent. Surely a man of his intellect would know that. Even if his story was true (I don't believe it is) he doesn't have a legal right to stand on. Where is his proof of concept?

    Pretty standard stuff from most long-term prisoners. They're commonly entitled to file suits at no charge, and commonly paper the system with these pro se suits. But you have to admire his chutzpa. Most prisoner filings are low-rent, imagination-less affairs. At least this guy did Think Different. ;)
