Perhaps one of the coolest bits of innovation was at the other Vegas show. The one next to CES with er, the girls. Lurid Video was demonstrating a high definition movie streaming from a Media Center PC to a Xbox 360, and playing on a chunky plasma screen. The complete lack of HD content available in the mainstream right now means that 'adult content' is actually a prime demonstration of the Xbox 360 technology right now. Apparently, a couple of Microsoft guys dropped by the booth and said, "Hey, we're not here officially... but that's totally how that feature was supposed to work." Admiration indeed.
he same applies to websites and media, too. There were over six thousand members of the press at CES, and I saw a decent proportion of them walking in and out of the always-overcrowded press room on-site. It's hilarious to check out people's badges then go and check out their website after they've walked on. Honestly, how many gadget weblogs does the world need? As I said, I'm all for choice, but are you honestly going to top Engadget, which put out the most outrageously comprehensive coverage of the event? I don't think so, somehow. So why exist?
But let me put it this way, succinctly: Vista delivers the same functionality as Tiger. But 12 months later. And less sexily.
As a fairly liberal kind of guy, I'm all for choice. Choice is great

(And don't say the lack of iTunes. It's the best media player out there, suckers.)

Sure, Intel has a bigger market share from OEMs but AMD isnt big enough to dictate market trends like Intel because it doesnt have the OEM backing to make it stick. Intel failed with BTX remember, although it does push forward constantly with DDR2, Integrated southbridges with RAID etc. AMD's aims and Intel's aims are different in how they intend to progress, because AMD more or less just makes CPUs: That's all it's REALLY known for. Whilst intel makes... just about everything in large quantities: chipsets, LAN, wireless, CPUs, etc

We all know that sex sells, but apparently it helps push new standards forward faster.
stuff that looks "cute n sexy" isnt efficient and becomes annoying after the initial "wooo" has worn of.

See my point?

before that 64bit chips were pretty much exclusive to servers and very specific applications (itanic anyone? :D)
