Admit it, you tried to wipe that part in the picture where the "D" desktop looks like it has something on your screen.

"Intel said that it had been designed with kiosks and digital signage in mind."

This is sad. It goes to show just how out-of-touch mid and upper level management is. I can only begin to imagine the amount of cool tech they are sitting on and won't just release to 'see where it goes' because they either planned for a different market or think it doesn't have any other place in the market.

My uncle worked for IBM for years. He sent me a floppy disk full of internal use only software one day. They had the coolest stuff. Screen graphics generators, compression programs, etc. All of it just sat there, buried under the company's bureaucracy.

Come on Intel. Turn those engineers loose and just put out what they develop. Internet buzz will tell you what is and isn't a hit. Then you'll know what to develop into a product and release on the market.

Well put. VERY well put.

And I'd like to add, I think the missed the whole point of the interest in pi and the via version. People want a decent PC for a small amount of money. Pricing this thing at 400 dollars is ridiculous. They should have put Sandy Bridge in it and sold it for 150 or 200 dollars. It would sell wayyyyy better. Just my two cents.
