EU fines Intel 1.06 billion in the EU antitrust case. Justice at last I guess you could say. Not a day too soon and hardly surprising given the shenanigans that's been going on for so long. Intel will of course appeal, but I think their chances at getting a particularly much more favorable verdict are slim given the facts on the table. A more interesting question is if it will actually change Intel's behavior. I'm doubtful. Although the fine is the largest ever it's probably only a fraction of the profits Intel made over their years from their illegal activities.

Also worth reading:
Will fine force Intel to change its ways?
