Intel shows off at IDF

The Inq has an article on some of the stuff Intel showed off today:
The show itself started out with a spoof on the Apple I'm a Mac commercials, both of the people in the commercial showed they had Intel CPUs, and made friends. Awww. Cleanse with fire. Apple went on to run over its product line, pointing out that Intel was in them all. Needless to say, the Apples were shown to obliterate the older unnamed CPUs by large margins.

Then it was off to quad cores, the first one is going to be a Core 2 Extreme CPU, followed in Q1 by the new brand name of Core 2 Quad. Looks like someone got the name definitively wrong, wonder if they will retract?

The funny part is Paul Otellini pointed out the benchmarks printed on Tom's Hardware. Why is it funny? Intel tried everything in its power to stop that review from going up, including flat out stating that it would cut off Tom's from release CPUs if they published it. They published it, and theoretically were cut off. I wonder if they still are with Otellini blackmail photos?
