"intel inside" No more

the possibility of Intel ditching its 14 year old “Intel Inside” tagline in January of 2006. Considering that the branding has helped Intel to become the fifth most valuable brand in the world, it was quite a shock that the company was thinking about pushing it aside. Today’s Wall Street Journal [subscription required] confirms that rumor and Intel is indeed overhauling its corporate branding.

While we have previously talked about Intel’s new product branding which you can view here, it’s the new tagline, Leap Ahead, that is the most interesting to us. Intel is trying to get away from being known soley as a manufacturer of processors for computers and become a dominant force in all things related to consumer electronics.

People scoffed at NVIDIA when they said that they were going to get away from solely providing chips for graphics card and become a platform-centric company. The move worked for NVIDIA and they are now happy to provide stable computing platforms for both AMD and Intel in addition to mobile phones, PDAs and gaming consoles. Intel has already shown their ability to market their platforms on a large scale with their hugely successful Centrino mobile campaign. The company looks to do the same for Media PCs with Viiv. With increased competition coming at all sides from AMD, Intel’s change of direction to adapt to changing market conditions couldn’t come at a more opportune time

MS no puede con los bucaneros

Microsoft ha sido duramente cuestionado por quedarse en el reino del DVD , ahora que los juegos ocupan espacio a lo bestia, por ejemplo The bards tale para PC es más de 7 Gigas.

Bueno, esos sitios del ASIA dedicados a encontrar maneras de “darle la vuelta” a las protecciones, tal como fue la del DVD de Hollywood, han estado trabajandoi en el mes que la consola ha estado a la venta y por fin lo lograron, unos cuantos Modchips se podran ver en cuestión de semanas, aqui en Tepis o Meave ya no debe de tardar, tal vez para el lanzamiento en México.

Xbox 360 mod chips due in a few weeks?

Ok, it was cute and all when Microsoft came out with their statements about how “hack-proof” the Xbox 360 was going to be, and they even admitted themselves that “sooner or later someone will work out how to circumvent security,” but it seems like we’re going to see some hackage sooner rather than later. SPOnG is reporting that the first mod-chips for the 360 will be available within a month, allowing the play of “backup” game copies, which, with the recently released software that allows Xbox 360 game data extraction, means that Microsoft might have some piracy on their hands before too long. Though, if it’s any consolation for the boys in Redmond, SPOnG is reporting that “Microsoft’s security is the best we’ve seen to date for a disc-system. It it weren’t for the fact that DVD is used, it’s likely that further development wouldn’t have been worth anyone’s time.” Oh the irony.

Carta a santa Frank Delgado

El estimado Droguelino envio esto via email
(Basada en un relato de Gomaespuma)

Querido Santa Claus yo te escribo
pues me he portado muy bien este año.
Yo soy un niño muy caritativo
que a los animalitos no hace daño.

Que me trago la comida
insípida de mi abuela,
que le cargo sus mapures
que le friego las cazuelas.

Soy bastón de los viejitos
en difíciles subidas,
lazarillo de los ciegos
al cruzar por la avenida.

A mi mamá la sigo en sus creencias
y a mi papá le cepillo las botas.
Realizo mis tareas a conciencia
y a fin de año tuve buenas notas.

Y hasta he ganado concursos
que premian sabiduría,
ya no escribo en las paredes
y cuido la ecología.

No me burlo de Carlitos
diciéndole “cuatro ojos”,
no le digo “dientefrío” a Manolito
y no lo enojo.

Por eso es que te pido, venerable Santa Claus:
te acuerdes de este niño que tan bien se te portó.
Tal vez un tren eléctrico, un Nintendo, o qué sé yo.
O una patineta, mejor una bicicleta.
Esa es la mejor manera de premiar
a un niño ejemplar.

Entonces, Santa Claus, es que no entiendo
que me hayas traído un camión de madera,
un dominó -que no es ningún Nintendo-
y sobre todo aquella mierda de trompeta.

Te voy a decir que haces
si antes yo no te estrangulo:
esos ridículos juguetes
te los metes en el culo.

Pedante Santa Claus y me disgusta
que hasta el hijo menor de mis vecinos
que un soberbio tronco de hijueputa,
enano con instintos asesinos

se pasea por el barrio, él
con su nueva bicicleta, y yo
y yo con ganas de meterle
en la cabeza la trompeta.

Pero que se cuiden los viejitos
de mi ira despiadada
y si me encuentro a tus renos,
coño, me los cagaré a pedradas.

Por eso es que te digo, decadente Santa Claus,
me cago en tu trineo y la puta que te parió.
Hice de comemierda todo un año y no sirvió,
para el año que viene, sí,
para el año que viene, sí,
para el año que viene seré yo
un niño cabrón.
