This was offered by CEO Wen Chi Chen, having meet this gentleman I can understand why he is doing this, very kind. it's interesting to note that Microsoft are only donating US$10 million.


A Taiwan high-tech firm offered yesterday to donate US$100 million to the US following the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington.


VIA Technologies Inc («Â²±¹q¤l), the world's second-largest microchip designer, said it is waiting for response from the US so that it can know how to make the donation.


"The donation can be in cash or in relief materials. We are saddened by the disaster so we want to do something," VIA General Manager Chen Wen-chi (³¯¤åµa) said.


VIA is locked in a legal dispute with Intel Corp, the world's largest chip maker.
