Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

nVidia looks set to abandon its successful TNT brand name in favour of something possibly more macho but very likely less well known. The 3D graphics acceleration specialiast's upcoming NV10 chip, due to ship in the autumn, will not be known as the TNT3, as expected, but will be named according to the winner of a competion the company recently held. According to Maximum PC, nVidia had over 8000 "real" suggestions, which the company has now reduced to a short list of 25. Among the favoured names nVidia spokesman Derek Perez released to the magazine include Tsunami, Slick, Predator, Silk and TNL. nVidia said it will announced the new name in just under a month's time. Our vote naturally goes for Vulture. ®
