I can't drive Vifty-Viiv 

Intel is marketing a new technology for Media Center PC's called Viiv(rhymes with something that ends in ive). It still remains to be seen if it is a good idea or not but it does look promising with regard to what it gives to the customer. The technical aspects aside, what the hell are they thinking ? They are going to Prince themselves with this name. Everywhere I read about Viiv the text always reminds the reader that Viiv rhymes with five. Remember what happened to Prince when he changed his to name to an unpronounceable symbol. He became known as The Artist Formerly Known As Prince, and then it was shortened to just The Artist and then finally he changed his name back to Prince. Only time will tell if Intel has indeed created another winner as they had with Centrino and Pentium.



Who knows what those marketing guys are up to.
It looks like roman numerals.
When did Intel start?
It does cause some chatter.
Chatter is good.

Now that the buzz has settled. It is well known that Centrino is amoung the lowest performance wireless devices in existance.
