Time to spend money in engineering Intel!

If I remember correctly intel is in the top 5 of companies in the world with highest budgets for R&D. You might not like their final products but if there's something not to sneeze at in the world, it's their engineering wink.gif

I agree that most people don't know much about computers, but you were probably seeing the ones that know the least. Anyone that knows much about computers wouldn't be going to a repair shop or an internet cafe.

Wow, this is quite shocking. Why would they do this? Marketing is the reason why they have the market share they do.

Well... That and bribing OEMs. wink.gif

So they are going to stop price gauging for minimal gains if any year after year? I always figured the campaign was really an incomplete sentence.

Intel Inside...You

Oh most certainly, this was 5 years ago now. The cafe shut down in the end. But even in my career as a building surveyor, it is shocking how many people just have absolutely no idea.

I would offer that with all the self inflicted brand damage AMD is doing to itself lately (i.e. since 2004), the marketing folks at Intel just felt like the Intel Inside moneys were no longer needed.

I don't think so, Intel Inside allowed Intel to do minimal marketing and basically outsourced sales and marketing aside from B2B. It saved Intel a lot of money internally, and held other companies accountable and dependent. It's a beautiful business move, and one that the industry relies on. What i think is going on is that after years of not having competition, Intel now does. They probably don't want to subsidize as much as they are when they have competition because they can't track how much marketing one company does for AMD while also marketing for them like they used too.

This program was exactly about bribing, it's not about ads and stickers.
