Dear Intel Corporation,
You were informed of the flaws in your CPUs months ago. Specifically, Spectre on June 1st, and Meltdown on July 28th of last year.
In December of last year I spent $1,877.34 on a new computer system based on the i7-8700k CPU, a CPU you long knew to have a major security issue. You should have stopped CPU sales as soon as you knew how bad the security issue with your CPUs were.
You knowingly sold me a flawed product and you are responsible for not only that but the related purchases, the time wasted, the sleepless nights and anguish. So, you owe me $1,877.34 + $1000 for time wasted + $5000 for pain and suffering. Complete breakdown is available on request. I expect this to be paid promptly.

Anyone know the email addy to Intel’s legal team? Seriously, I want to email the actual legal team.

I was kinda kidding with this post but the more I thought about this whole thing the angrier I got. F them. They knew this was going to be a fiasco a long time ago. They knew the problem ultimately isn’t completely fixable. Yet, they continued to sell defective products. That’s 100% BS.
Yeah, I know they ain’t gonna pay me but I want in on the class action suit that is coming. Maybe in 5 years I’ll be able to buy a beer or two with my share.
