    • Intel’s Confusing Naming Scheme Revealed? (via AnandTech)
      • Core i5, Corei3 and Core i7
      • Most confusing part is the fact that there will be Core i7 for both LGA-1156 (new) and LGA-1366 (current)
      • Core 2 Duo & Core 2 Quad naming scheme disappearing along with Centrino

    Miscellaneous

    • “New Xbox 360” for 2010 “Confirmed” By Steve Ballmer (via TGDaily)
      • Confirmed at “The Executive’s Club of Chicago” while discussing “the role of innovation in changing economic times.”
      • Most likely “slim” Xbox 360 with Project Natal camera bundled

      Opportunity to play more Bionic Commando: Rearmed? Nice. Confusing consumers with all these Core i-something nonsense? Insane.

      New Xbox 360 with Project Natal in 2010? Not surprised.
