Sorry it's a bit off topic, but some of you may be interested to know that Rambus has been charged with fraud and was found guilty! This affects everyone who buys PC's because Rambus is trying to collect royalties for standard and DDR sdram (including those chips on graphics cards).

From everything I've read about Rambus, they are scum and deserve whatever they get. It's nice to see the court system work.

From EBN:

The jury ordered Rambus to pay $3.5 million in punitive damages to Infineon Technologies AG, which Rambus had sued for alleged patent infringement.

The damage amount, however, will likely be reduced to as low as $350,000 due to a Virginia state law capping the level of punitive awards.
