    News Apache helicopter has crashed in residential area in south Japan

    News Serious security flaw in Intel processors

    According to a Reuters article, AMD is also affected by a similar flaw. I'd say that if Intel senses a long-term loss because of this revelation, they'll make sure they let everyone know that AMD was/is also affected.
