A year ago: AGP chip to up the ante

Build a business case: developing custom apps

Our colleagues at Computer Reseller News wrote in December that Intel is set to release the 740 graphics chip, an AGP sorta-thing which will come with 3D features. Our friends in the trade are horrified at this. It's only a month or so ago that a senior VP at Lentil admitted that his company had designs on the networking market and its attempt to corner the graphics market will add another nail to the coffin which is third party chip support, they think. Meanwhile, we note here at The Register that The Great Stan of Pulses is keeping pretty quiet about all the shenanigans between the DoJ and Microsoft. This, of course, is because there is also an investigation currently underway against Intel and it does not want to be seen to rock any kind of boat while Bill and Bill's feds battle it out in an ever-more acrimonious public row. The Register understands that even as we speak, the Lentil employees in rather a big building in Oregon are preparing a defence which they think even the Justice Department will crumble before. But we noticed over the festive season that Cirrus did some sort of re-org and our friends in the channel seem convinced that there isn't much room for third parties when Lentil's in the race. On the subject of US States, the awful Internet product WebTrends reports that in November, the top 10 cities were Palo Alto, Columbus, Ohio, Boca Raton, Schaumburg, Illinois, Vienna, Virginia, Mountain View, San Jose, Seattle, Washington, Falls Church, Virginia and Redmond, Washington. Most of these we have no trouble with, but we do wonder what goes on in Schaumburg, Vienna and Falls Church. Care to enlighten us? ®
