"A reader pointed out that Acer is doing battery recalls on AMD powered notebooks. Clearly, faulty batteries did not cause AMD notebooks to explode.

As I analysed long time ago, the Intel CPUs were the cause of the explosions so vividly shown on various web sites. In some cases, even houses and trucks were burnt down by Intel notebooks."

Wow... that's all I can say right now... wow.

Excuse me, I think I dropped my tinfoil hat back there while I was running away from Russian government agents trying to capture me and infiltrate my workplace. At least half of my coworkers are already spies.

I'm about to switch sides in this debate... I'm going to remove myself from the "this guy is crazy" camp and go over to the "this guy is brilliant and is just playing us all for fools" camp. I refuse to believe anyone can really be this stupid.

While I do not understand what he is trying to say, it is still sure that he is talking total garbage.
But hey, his rotten brain manages to make some money for him.

Man that's incredible! That's even better than his solution for AMD's financial problems! :lol: 

He should definitely run for office. :lol:

Its obvious that the lower power / scaled down 65nm design of the Intel notebook cpu's would have likely caused the explosions in the notebooks and not the higher power/90nm CPU's that AMD provides in theres until recent. If a CPU were to be the cause of the problem just simple math concludes that Intel's is obviously the most logical choice for the cause! ROFL...seriously where the hell does this guy get this crap?!?

It's obvious what is going on here...
Intel is a corporation created by farmers to drain the worlds electricity supply with their super power consuming processors, putting millions out of jobs.
The farmers will then raise prices of basic food products and become the rich super powers of the world.

Sometimes it's better to just ignore the crazies, than to bring more attention to them.

In fact, if Intel were to throw a libel suit against Sharikou, it may appear as a big bad company attacking a poor little blogger.

They only people who read his blog are the people who like to laugh at him, along with a few brainless followers.

Don't forget all farmers are Communists... This is yet another Marxist plot to create a socialist utopia, where only one CPU maker is needed.

Rodney,

How can you be so narrow in your thinking.

You see.. The specific frequencies chosen by Intel for their new line of processors (no mistake here) were chosen for their quantum shift capabilities.

The harmonic distortions created by the processor allow a spatial distortion field to expand only to the power level of the battery used (beware extended use batteries and PC makers that use greater than 7V on their laptop systems). The spatial distortion field is generated by Intel only chipsets. The 965G is really to be avoided.

The problem is field containment.. (the reason to avoid extended use batteries). Normally (normally ;)  ;) ) the field is contained by the chipset. But, sometimes the only thing saving whole cities from shifting is the battery draining. Now you know why only Intel notebooks drain so quickly.

This is all a part of a test by the US government to force people to turn over their cheese in return for an AMD Turion equipped notebook.

Ever see the movie Army of Darkness? I'm just sayin!!! ;)

I admit it, I am a fan of him, because after a hard day in reality land, I can unwind and read his crap, it's deep, and it's full of surprises. I like the way the boy thinks, he's a crazy genious, his blog is full of useful patents to help treat people with clinical depression and delusional minds. He is also a living proff of the existence of an alternate world were things are not quite what they seem to be. Whatever it is, he must be looking through a seventh window :?

The moron started an 'Intel CPUs cause laptops to explode' thread here at THG last year. The thread was deleted shortly after he was banned. In the thread several of us pointed out to him the volotility of LiON batteries, but he refused to respond, simply relying on the 9-inch tactic of dropping FUD/BS and running.

Sharikou is without a doubt one of the epic imbeciles of the internet.

:lol:  :lol: 

You know, its funny, but he is so out there, I would have guessed that some one from intel would have gone after him for defamation by now. Or at least a former coworker would have logged in somewhere anonymously and spilled the facts. We know he worked at Intel. We know he wasnt a PhD. We know he was fired, and the anti-Intel sentiment would appear obvious. Or do we know these things?

That he is still pushing the exploding CPUs stories makes me wonder. His blog article on that falls into the catagory of libel, and is easily prosecutable. Why hasnt Intel filed against him? Its not going to make him a martyr, except with the Horde, and they fall into the catagory of "insignificantly harmful when debunked". The data the article provides is clearly misinterpreted for the sole purpose of damaging Intels reputation. Textbook libel!

Everything about this indicates a ridiculously easy kill for Intels lawyers. I dont get it. Why havent they taken the shot that is just begging to be taken? Unless there are ulterior motives. If the info out there about him is to be believed, he has no legal sway or influence against Intel, no wrongful dismisal judgements, no restraining orders, nothing. Not a single thing to prevent Intel from putting him out of our misery. So why are they letting him post that slander?

Theres gotta be something else going on....got to. :?:
April 27, 2007 5:21:07 AM

The guy is a goof, and most people who visit his site are usually asking him to produce evidence of Intel's demise, based on his previous "predictions".

I don't know if he ever worked for Intel, or where. I thought there was a forum that had someone who worked with him, pretty much rat him out as a fake, but I can't remember what forum it was on.

If this guy is really a pHD, he's the stupidest sounding pHD I've ever experienced. Let me just say that I work with an engineer who is a tad over 27, with a pHD, total gamer (always wants to school me in Supreme Commander for some strange reason), and I have yet to hear him say "FRAG".

I like to read the comments, cause they are hiliarous. Some of them even make my day, when I'm feeling a bit blah.

A PhD...... what bloody farce that is. A monkey could get that at if they pick a shitty enough school.

I was thinking of going that path myself. Was halfway through an American Computer Science degree (At DeVRY, Calgary - Canada) and dropped out. If it wasn't for the sex and booze, I would have left DeVRY so much sooner.

Why?

Because it was WAY too easy.
This first day we learned how to turn a PC on. 6 months later we were learning how to use WordPerfect.
1 year mark - How to make a simple html webpage.

At halfway mark we were taking technical writing and and intro course to Linux. This consisted of learning how to write a proper office memo and how to use the VI editor. WTF? Did we learn how to install Linux? Nope. How to install programs and install drivers? Nope. How to compile anything at all? Nope. Did we learn what proper office documentation edicate was? Sure.

Our hardware class consisted of passing a hard drive and processor around the class. Thats about it. Did we assemble a PC? Nope. Did we troubleshoot one? Nope. Install an OS of any kind? Nope. A+ course? You're kidding right....

Our programming classes were very rudimentary COBOL and C++.

I talked to some grads (less then 30 out of 240 who started with me) and they were excited by their last term securities class. It consisted of what password not to use......

Seriously were are talking grade 8 stuff here, nothing beyond that. Even with English, Psycology, Economics, Business Math, Sociology (Gen Ed.) etc. etc. classes I was able to maintain a GPA of 4.0 by missing half my classes and never opening a book. (had about $4500.00 of them before I left)

I am not a genius, liar or braggart. Just took all the same crap in Junior high school. Hell, in fact grade 8 computer science was more advanced. Sure I could have coasted through, but I was paying 13K a year. In 1.5 years I racked up almost 20K in student loans.

I thought this was just a DeVRY issue, until I talked to some friends at SAIT and they all had the exact same experience. The only people I met who actually felt challenged had not been to school in 30 years.

No offence intended to the university educated out there as I'm sure there are excellent schools with very advanced courses, but I personally feel there are at least a few schools designed for the lowest common denimator.

My brother had excellent schooling at the local college in IT for "just" a diploma. The classes were very thorough and advanced. I know great IT education exists.

But there are ways for morons to sneak through to bachelor and I'm sure even masters and PhDs.

Oh my good god. That's the funniest read i've had in a long time. What is he going on about, sounds like he thinks you can run 64bit code while in 32 bit mode. Obviously has no idea how an operating system works. Windows is limited to 2GB per process, you can use more but then you need to do IPC and have a new process for all the extra data you need.
FUN
And youll need that win version that supports extra ram....datacenter edition or w/e it is.

EDIT: Ahh i think i got it. He thinks if you run 32bit programs on a 64bit o/s they can access more memory!
Doesnt understand what an opcode is then!
April 27, 2007 5:31:40 PM

Just so folks know...

A true PHD entitles you to NOT actually work. Given the right circumstances all you have to do is sign your name correctly.

For instance. Many defense contractors employ PHDs for purposes of bidding a project. You see, a certain level of college expertise is required in the RFP (go figure). You bid with your PHDs and then trade out for your masters/bachelors/equivalent experience personnel once the bid has been won.

Many PHDs I know either stay at the school where they earned their degree (hopefully with grant money) or follow on to similar situations as described above.

I had a friend (with a masters) that went to work for a DOD contractor. The office was full of PHDs that barely knew how to turn on a computer. They ran around the office calling each other DOCTOR (no really). They would talk down to my friend because he only had a masters. Turns out they would not talk down to him when proposal time came around and they could not finish a doc because the one they were working did not get saved/got corrupted. They would call him in to fix it for them.

I guess what I am getting at is you can have a PHD and still be a moron. For that matter you could be a true rocket scientist and still be a complete moron/social miscreant.

It is what you do with the piece of paper that makes the difference. Jack and I have had this discussion before and as a PHD he is in complete agreement.

Also, many PHDs find it difficult to find work, because a PHD often means you have been too long into an academic arena and not long enough in a working arena. Often the capabilities/knowledge of PHD level personnel are old/archaic/out of date. In fact I end up having to correct or fire developers/testers to break bad habits given them by Uni...

Sad state really. The only PHD I have met that is still fully immersed in the field in which it was earned, was a fellow working on OC48 Long Haul fiber/mux principles (before they came to fruition). He was able to stay active in his field and helped to pioneer long haul services.
April 27, 2007 6:09:28 PM

Couldn't agree more :)  especially on the work point.

A lot of education is a farce these days. You learn 10x as much in half the time on the job. Most the stuff you learn in education is irrelevant too.
Not to knock all degree's, but some i feel are just a total load of crap.
You learn what's required to pass the exam board criteria then forget it all.

More like a test of how much bullshit you are willing to put up with.

Well come on man, you work there, tell your boss about this bozo. Get the legal dept on his ass.

To be honest, there are a few of us that read his blog, mostly for laughs. But I never take anything he says seriously. I mean, I know this girl who was looking for a laptop, and she asked me about which batteries were exploding, not which CPU. So, whatever drivel he wants to believe, isn't getting into the mainstream.

On the other hand, I'm sure there has to be someone who has already alerted the Intel lawyers about this guy, and what he's been saying. I'm sure of it, since there are some pretty tightly wound up people that work here, and if it might make them look good, they'll narc.
