my, my, you look so surprised! all major manufactures give instructions to retailers on how to call or refer to their products, this is a very common procedure.

wake up!

Why?
Does intel have a problem with not using nouns and adjectives correctly?

hmmmm

itanium. a thing. a type of chip.
looks noun-ish to me

then again...

as a verb:
well Itanium me!

or an adjective:
my, your looking itanium today :) 

lol

if that came from a legal document, it's no wonder intel's chips are priced so high. they have to pay top dollar to lawyers that have nothing better to do.

Yep all corporations have strict naming regulations for thier products its nothing new.

Whole 100 page docments are often published by like companies on the 'dos' and 'don'ts' of product advertisng and naming.
I'm sure AMD have similar documents relating to thier 'PR' scheme/naming.

What I can't believe is that there are people in companies who do this for a living and devote days and weeks thinking this stuff up !
