Getting Jiggy With AMD
Well, this is it. The final day for me. Computex still has another two days, but that's when the show opens up to the general public, and we all know what the general public is like, don't we? Apparently it is a madhouse on the show floor, and it is too hot and too muggy to rub shoulders with the locals.
Yup, it's still hot and muggy. No, I don't have anything against the general public.
Obviously, I am too tired now to put up any resistance. So, here it is, the AMD hammer balloon on top of the building shot.
Yup, I got AMD fanboy mail haranguing me about my K8 FUD coverage. No, I don't have a contract with Intel.
Apparently, AMD's green army of fans take great comfort from this picture and feels that it reflects many things. Frankly, it conjures up pictures of a celestial blow, much the same as the impact of an earthquake, but this is not a time for sarcasm.
Let's all embrace the hammer on the building picture, which no amount of Intel marketing might can top.
AND, just to show how even-handed I can be, how much I am willing to suck up to the AMD fan base, here are the AMD dancers!
Get down on it,
Get down on it........
I was a little disappointed that the AMD dancers were masked, however, they were fully clothed, and maintained their dignity, all good things for AMD's image.
I'm stretching here, AMD fanboys, so cut me some slack, will ya?
Oh, there were only three of them, five short of an octet, and that might be cause for concern, but perhaps I shouldn't read too much into it, and not blame it on the boogie.
Everyone happy? We've gotten jiggy with Intel, AMD, and did a reivew of the C3. Surely no one expects us to go kiss a PowerPC chip, or spread honey on an UltraSPARC.
On with the show.
