  1. Multi-platinum music artist, producer, front man for The Black Eyed Peas, and seven-time Grammy winner has been hired by Intel as "director of creative innovation." The company signed will.i.am for a multi-year, hands-on creative and technology collaboration, but wouldn't give any specifics beyond the fact that this was a "marrying of two worlds -- entertainment and technology."

    That'd actually be a very good call. All those mindless fans will be badgering their parents to buy AMD products. I'd predict juggernaut status in two weeks tops!

    Where there's a will, there's... Intel?!
     
  6. This will be about the same as when Microsoft got the guys from "Pimp My Ride" to design the xbox 360. All he will do is designs for logos and stuff, maybe some music for commercials or something. He's clearly not qualified to work on developing anything technical.

    He says he uses computers all the time, so he gets a job at intel? Hey, I use them all the time too, I guess I'm also qualified to work at intel. Is this some kind of free money "job" he got because he tried to run for president of Haiti and was told "no, you don't live here, you can't be president" then cried about it in the media? Did whoever was trying to back him in his presidential bid land him this "job"?
     
  7. nevermind, that was Wyclef Jean. I get confused with all the talentless people making tens of millions of dollars whoring themselves in the media all the time. My bad! Still stupid that this black eyed pea dude gets a job at intel!

    Expect a new Intel jingle poking fun at AMD.
     
  10. Wow, easy on the jealousy.
    Like you would turn the job down if intel came knocking on your door.

    Who gives a S*** anyway.
    Intel want to sell to more products to more mindless consumers - business as usual.
