They're starting to get a little bothersome now. All of this goes on behind closed doors, takes too long and costs, both in terms of money and time, companies it turns its steely gaze upon. Far from being good for consumers, if this carries on it's going to make trading in the EU a bind for any corporation, with the resulting expense passed on to us. If there were any sort of due process I wouldn't be quite as bothered, but this is rule by committee and is getting ridiculous.
By the way, where does that €1.n billion they're fining Intel go? AMD aren't going to see any of it and I very much doubt that we are, except for paying for it on the next upgrade. They need to realise that whatever they fine these people comes out of our pockets, not theirs. For the sake of the rest of us, please, PLEASE come up with a better mechanism than fines to control abusive monopolies, otherwise EU fines and the cost of justifying their practices to the commission are going to comprise the majority of a product's price in Europe.
