Suspects arrested for selling sample Intel CPUs on eBay "An investigation into the illegal selling of Intel sample CPUs in Taiwan has now resulted in arrests. The China Post reports today that four engineers that worked for Intel's OEM makers have now been arrested and charged with allegedly selling engineering sample versions of Intel's CPU products on eBay. The four unnamed suspects are now facing jail time that could be as long as five years."

5 years for this. o.o not bad when you can go to jail for life if you have certain drugs on you.

Why Ebay, You think these guys would be well connected enough to "Black Market" these chips. Dumb criminals deserve what's coming though I guess.
