HYPE?  Yipe!  "Ultra" yipe, even.  And both of them Hype-r T* to boot,
to absolutely guarantee that only the most compulsive and knowledgeable
customers will have a clue as to which thing that they think that
they're talking about that they're ACTUALLY talking about, with any
particular processor.  I find it difficult to keep straight, and I
seriously did spend a long day reading all (well, a lot:-) about both.

However, this statement contains an obvious oxymoron.  You wrote a
statement about marketing departments and thinking...

Might as well ask what my dog is thinking.

> Yummy beer.

Hmmm, that's a remarkably good guess.  Yes, my dog could be thinking
about yummy beer.  My brother-in-law's dogs definitely are.  He feeds
them occasional sips of Bell's Amber Ale.  It's pretty yummy.  But
marketing departments?  Naaaaah....
