You all may dislike anything popular in today's world, but I thought lady gaga's ideas that came out of Polaroid were pretty spiffy.

Give it a chance, how can it be bad for any of you?

You ever have one of those moments when you feel like what am I doing with my life. This is one of them. Actually, it sounds crazy but this is a great move by Intel, musicians are notoriously creative and being at the fore front of using and creating technology believe it or not. Sting, is another musician who comes into mind, in this mold. Who was using standard computing to create music and even distribute it long ago, as well as developing his own software to improve the process. Don't sleep.

As much I do find Will.I.Am creative, I sincerely doubt he could help Intel in any way. Unless he has some computer engineering degree I haven't heard of, it's only a publicity stunt to me.

he could release a throng of fail products and drop my stock price.

and really there are tons of other people I would like to see creating things, Intel makes processors, how truly creative can you get with those?

Do you know how many people will buy something just because Will.I.Am tells them to? This is a good thing across the board - a way to embrace Apple's scheme.

Its not like he is going to be engineering anything

It's a pretty damn good move by Intel. Will.i.am could be responsible for the next best thing at Intel.

Do you really think Intel is dumb enough to make a throng of fail products? They're not Apple.

"Intel is thrilled to be able to tap into Will.i.am’s “limitless” creativity."

Replace Creativity with potential and you nearly have what G-Man said to freeman at the end of HL1, sorry i just to put it out there XD
