Intel Establishes Its Own Free Press

Intel has gone into the news business, sort of.

The giant chip maker already creates and posts all the conventional press releases, blogs, tweets, presentations and marketing materials. Yet some people at Intel started hankering for something more, largely in response to a perception that a diminishing number of news outlets have the personnel, time or space to take on many technology topics in depth.

So the Santa Clara, Calif., company has launched what it calls the Free Press, a beta news section on its website that hopes to generate articles that are good enough for professional media outlets to republish. Yes, the subject matter is generally related to Intel, or technology generally, and there is no getting around the fact that the content is likely to have a bias.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
