The mass server hoster SERVER4YOU has still a special discount offer running until 15. January.
Their bottom line of root server, the ECO Server, equipped with an AMD Athlon II Quad Core processor, has also a price cut from regular 28.99€ to 23.99€ with 149€ setup-fee or 33.99€ without setup-fee. On the down side, their low cost servers are missing a lot of useful administration features, you will need to pay extra for it or hope your server will run always fine or you don't care about a little more down time.
Customers can choose whether their server should be hosted at the European data center in Strasbourg, France, or St Louis, USA.

AMD is not getting out of the dirt. Getting beaten down again and again, struggling to get out new performance or ultra-mobile products and continues loosing top personal.
In an after hour notice AMD has told now, that Chief Financial Officer Thomas Seifert, one of AMD's leading heads, is running away for a better company.
So what the fuck is up AMD?
At the last quarter results, AMD was positive about the second quarter business, giving a forecast of flat or up to 6% increased revenues. But AMD punch into their investors faces again, shouting out an after hour emergency statement and send their stocks into free fall mode.
AMD's last quarter revenue dropped by about 11% sequentially as a result of a heavy miss in sales targets in Europe and China.
Final quarter results will be published in July 19th.
