Intel's Barrett confirms Internet Pad a goer

It will be successful by next year, says Cheerio eater

The Internet Pad, which Intel successfully demonstrated in Oregon last year, is a reference platform that PC OEMs are interested in, the CEO of Intel said today. Craig Barrett, CEO at Intel, said that by this time next year there will be "successful designs" based on its reference design. Said Barrett: "I would expect to see designs of that type out in the next year. "My favourite application is that when you wake up in the morning, you don't have to get out of bed to see the Intel stories written. "With the Internet Pad you can see all references to all Internet stories about Intel." Barrett also revealed he eats Cheerios for breakfast, which, we understand, is an American kind of breakfast. ®
