We regularly keep our eyes open for new URLs that Intel registers because, for example in the case of the IA64 fund, the site appeared before the press release was vetted by the thought police. So we were intrigued yesterday to find a site we'd never seen before called Andy Grove Home which has a fun little Java applet. When it's loaded, you can do a 360 degree scan of Andy's office in Satan Clara, California. If you zoom in enough, you can even see the notices he posts on the walls of his eight by nine cubicle. The blurb says Andy's office is a little tidier than other Satan Clara employees. This is odd. We're sure we saw a keynote a coupla years back when Mr Grove showed us a picture of the spaghetti coming out of his PC, and complained bitterly about it. So where's the spaghetti? 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… ®
