Intel resellers are bracing themselves for visits from trenchcoated undercover agents checking up on their recall of Chipzilla marketing speak. Under the 'Intel Mystery Shopper' T scheme, dealers who drop casual references to Advanced Transfer Cache, Screaming Sindy's Extensions and the very wonderful* WebOutfitter service, can win a mystery prize. Check out the details here. If they run a demo using a Pentium III, they will "instantly win an attractive bonus". Details of the mystery prizes and bonus are unavailable (as it is Intel's policy not to comment on unannounced prizes and bonii). This latest harebrained scheme from the Great Stan of Marchitecture is in no way an attempt to locate dodgy dealers who are flogging engineering sample Intel chips because Chipzilla won't send them any production ones. Oh deary me, no. So repeat after me: "Rewarding Internet experience... 70 new instructions... unbelievable 3D..." Now where's my prize? ® *Wonderful in the sense that it doesn't work under Windows 2000.
