Well, Tom, wake up and smell the coffee, and thanks for the heads up!

I own an embedded hardware systems design company that also does PC
board layout.  I am obviously delighted to see that Intel, in this time
of economic hardship, is outsourcing badly needed technical work to
places with low labor costs and few, if any, meaningful labor or
environmental laws.  Perhaps you should consider that your entire system
validation tool section, including your position, could easily be
outsourced.  In fact, I hope it is!  Don't worry, they would never hire
you for your current job, even if you showed up in India and offered to
work below the local wage.  Are you curious why?  They have a sense of
national pride and feel a part of the Indian economy, thus they
naturally prefer to hire their own nationals.  That's illegal here, but
thankfully, they are not so constrained.  In addition, you have no caste
and are thus automatically excluded from most middle-class jobs.  Or
didn't you bother to check out the local apartheid?

I will make it a point to view the use of Intel processors, Ethernet
MAC/PHY's and other products in upcoming designs from a more informed
point of view.  Thank you for opening my eyes.
