A more intriguing question is, where's Andy himself? Hiding under the table? Other new registrations by Chipzilla include FOTOPIA.COM and COOLEXPRESSIONS.COM. Then there's CLIENT-MANAGEMENT.COM. Fotopia is probably something to do with digital cameras, a co-development with Kodak which means that in three or four years' time, silver will be much cheaper than copper... Although you won’t find Andy Grove's Home Page, you can get to it if you go to another new Intel site called Connected PC, which has all sorts of hints and tips on what you can do with your flashy new 550MHz Pentium III… ®
