What would be the point of saying "Here's a mockup of what Fermi might look like....."
Might as well have said...."here's the pretty picture I drew of me holding a Fermi"
I think Hector Ruiz should go to jail.
But it doesn't change the fact that Jen....made himself look like a fool....and he's now perceived as less than honest.
Next year I'm sure someone else will do something stupid and Jen's silliness will be forgotten ....but any company that has the gall to publish cartoons about Intel should have a better code of ethics than to claim a poorly constructed mock up....is the real deal.
