Usually I take a lot of the hype and claims about the stifling of "innovation" with a grain of salt. Besides the predictable moore's law, I haven't seen ALL that much innovation in general. However, when it was mentioned that Intel was actually planning to include support for Java in HARDWARE and that it was stomped down by MS that really proved it for me. Now I'm a Java developer, and I would see Intel developing support for Java on its commodity chips as a GREAT boon. Now THAT would be innovation. That would help enormously. Now I see an actual instance of the ambiguous "innovation" charge.
