If you purchased a new computer with a certain Pentium 4 processor for personal, family, or household use between November 20, 2000 and June 30, 2002, a pending class action lawsuit may affect your rights.

SAN FRANCISCO, March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The following release was issued by Analytics.

Legal Notice

If you purchased a new computer with a certain Pentium 4 processor for personal, family, or household use between November 20, 2000 and June 30, 2002, a pending class action lawsuit may affect your rights.

What is the Class Action About?

Purchasers of computers containing a certain Pentium 4 processor are suing Intel Corporation and Hewlett-Packard Company.  The lawsuit claims that Intel manipulated the performance scores for its first-generation Pentium 4 processor (codenamed Willamette) and that HP helped Intel.  The Plaintiffs want the Court to stop Intel from using this practice in the future.  Plaintiffs also want Intel and HP to repay the Class any money the companies may have received as a result of those business practices.

Intel and HP have denied any liability and all claims of misconduct.  No money or benefits are available now because the Court has not yet decided whether Intel or HP did anything wrong.  In addition, the Court has stayed the case as to HP pending resolution of the claims against Intel.  There is no guarantee that money or benefits will ever be obtained.  

Who Are Class Members?

The Class includes all residents of the United States, other than those residing in Illinois, who (i) purchased a new computer equipped with a Pentium 4 processor, (ii) purchased the computer between November 20, 2000 and December 31, 2001, and (iii) purchased the computer for personal, family, or household use; and all residents of the United States, other than those residing in Illinois, who (i) purchased a new computer equipped with a first-generation (Willamette) Pentium 4 processor or a Pentium 4 processor at speeds below 2.0 GHz, (ii) purchased the computer between January 1, 2002 and June 30, 2002, and (iii) purchased the computer for personal, family, or household use.

If you are a California resident and purchased your computer from HP, you are also in the HP Subclass defined by the Court.

Your Rights and Options

You have to decide whether to stay in the Class and, if applicable, the HP Subclass, or ask to be excluded and you have to decide this by April 30, 2014.  You cannot wait to see the result of any trial before making this decision.  If you think you are a class member, you can get detailed information about the class action, its potential effects on you and your rights by visiting www.IntelPentium4Litigation.com

To Remain a Class Member

If you don't do anything, you will stay in the Class and, if applicable, the HP Subclass and you will be bound by the Court's rulings in the lawsuit, including any final settlement or judgment.  If you do not exclude yourself from the Class and, if applicable, the HP Subclass, you can have your own lawyer appear in Court for you if you want someone other than the lawyers representing the Class to speak for you.  If the Plaintiffs obtain money or other benefits, another notice will be issued that will explain what you need to do to receive any benefits from this case. 

To Exclude Yourself from the Class, and if Applicable, the HP Subclass

If you exclude yourself, or get out of the Class and, if applicable, the HP Subclass, you will retain your right to sue regarding the subject of this class action.  To ask to be excluded from the Class and, if applicable, the HP Subclass, you must send an "Exclusion Request" letter by mail stating that you want to be excluded from the Class and, if applicable, the HP Subclass in Skold v. Intel.  If you are a member of the HP Subclass and only ask to be excluded from the "Class," you will also be excluded from the HP Subclass.  Be sure to include your name and address, and sign the letter.  Exclusion Requests must be postmarked by April 30, 2014 and mailed to: Girard Gibbs LLP, Skold v. Intel Exclusions, 601 California Street, 14th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94108.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
