Empowerment postponed

Intel has pulled the plug on its North American Applied Computing Roadshow at short notice. The tour, subtitled: "Empowering Developers of the Connected World", was scheduled to hit Ottowa, Raleigh and Chicago and other cities over the next fortnight. But like a number of recent Intel products, it has suffered a recall.

"We regret any inconvenience this may cause you. Please check back for future updates" is all the Web site reveals - save for a mildly surreal "Save $100!" promotion. And what that's all about, we haven't a clue, for the details of the promotion have been vaped along with the rest of the site: the Conference, Exhibits and other sections have been wiped too.

Intel's Applied Events in the past have typically showcased really quite interesting high-end platform initiatives for graphics modeling and multi-processing. Chipzilla offered no explanation for the cancellation. May be one of those Blue Mens' levers failed to pop up? ®
