With almost 5000 attendees to this year's Spring IDF, IDF continues to be a very strong show for Intel.

Craig Barrett's has been on a globalization of technology and the internet kick, so his introduction was similar in nature to many of his more recent speeches.

There wasn't much new to talk about based on Barrett's introduction, most of it was a rehash of the obvious and a lot of talk about history and where technology has innovated from. The keynote itself was fairly lackluster, which happens every now and then with Barrett IDF keynotes. We're expecting much more from the next keynotes, but there were a few things to report on from the opener this morning.

More about Moore's Law

    i'm all for "by wire"...
    electrical transmission/control is a lot more reliable than a mechanical one

    and i wouldn't want wintel in my (future) car either

    OMG, I hope that this ridiculous car does not show the way the industry is going. I vow to _never_ drive a car that is steered or otherwise controlled "by wire" in the sense of having a Wintel computer system in between me and the steering mechanism. Reply

    Nice, but the whole reason for internal windows is so you can have less drag. Not sure why you need a overkill x86 processor for that.

    Of course, why would I want a piece of junk Chrysler anyhow?

    WiMax cant be the solution to the half-assed broadband in this country. Its simply too slow (72Mb/s per node IIRC), when compared with most cable-based broadband speeds between 1.5 and 5Mbit/s. You'd need something a lot faster, or possibly lots of frequencies to get it to replace broadband over coax or fiber. Reply
