Intel Booth, CES 2008 Pic #225

I’ve posted a lot more of my pictures from CES at Flickr. I was uploading from my Treo before, but these were taken with a decent camera.

Intel had one of the largest and most impressive display setups, complete with this “green screen” booth where they’d create special effects on the screens.

The carnival style booths at CES where the companies did some creative thing were a lot more interesting, though some of the gimmicks were pretty lame. Parties and concerts probably gain a lot more attention for a company than booth babes or silly actors, though the ROI on many of the CES events would be hard to measure because much of CES is devoted to schmoozing customers or representatives rather than making actual sales or even brand building effects.

  1. What think ye of the recent anti-trust suits against the Big Intel, Duck? Intel’s Pentium CPU has been for years the equivalent to Microsoft’s Windows monopoly. I am not aware of all the details, but the anti-trust suit does not seem entirely unwarranted.

    At HoratioxCo we use AMD/Athlon CPU’s (still 32 bit, but may move up to 64) as well as boxes with Pentium IV or Vs. IN terms of performance, the AMD boxes easily match the Pentiums: the AMD/Athlon chip boxes are generally faster than the Pentiums (especially for net, gaming, or graphix, etc.), though the Pentium fans tend to claim that Pentium is safer, or runs cooler, etc. The AMD 64 smokes the Pentium (and rumor is Intel more or less started to rip off AMD/Athlon once AMD got the 64 bit chip going). The AMD’s, while are usually not as popular as Pent, are still less expensive than the equivalent Pentium chip-set.
