Apple envy
I'm not sure how long Intel's campaign has been running, but I find it suspiciously similar to Apple's "digital hub" model. Also, take a look at Intel's "Intel Inside" logo. It's a total copy of OS X, both its logo and feel. The ads I've seen are running in Entertainment Weekly. Also take a look at http://www.intel.com/

that intel inside logo has been around long before OSX was ever dreamed up in any form. sorry

Intel hgas also been pushing the digital thing since the P3 intro with its internet inhancements. sorry about that too.

I see what you are saying,but its debatable whether Intel or Apple have first used this strategy. And Apple doesn't say the "G4 is the digital hub." It says the hardware and software is the digital hub. Intels slogan is actually quite stupid. I know I don't pull out my G4 and listen to music on it!

intel and the music thing:

intel was addressing the growing number of people who are using their computers as a stereo through Mp3 and good sound cards (though with genereally crappy 120watt speakers). thats what they are talking about, mp3's being played on the computer.
