I have heard of some rediculous efforts to prevent "dilution". but this is friggin retarded. Those people arent even in the same market, much less sector. Intel needs to pass out prozac to its corporate board. Clearly they are a little too high strung.

Benchmarks are like sex, everybody loves doing it, everybody thinks they are good at it.

A little like the pot calling the kettle black to get so strung out over <i>that</i>.

No court was involved. No legal precidence set. No 'underdog' even had to pay for a lawyer or court fees.

Intel made a single offer for Town Graphics to not persue trademarking 'map inside'. (And for a whole whopping £400 / $600.) Town Graphics didn't even try to fight or ask for more. They just caved in.

Somehow, I just don't see the correlation between Intel yawning through such a casual and unpainful event and genocidal Nazis bent on world domination. Maybe you could use a little prozac yourself?

Hmmm... its not a big deal. But why the hell would intel care about a map making company? I see it as one more instance of preventing "dilution" going to an extreme.
the use of the term "word Nazi" was not meant to compare Intel to the former fascist regime. The term Nazi in certain instances means an extreme or misguided effort. Ive heard the phrase Nazi this and Nazi that in many thread headers meant to symbolize or emphasis a position.
I though everyone was aware of this colloquialism. I stand by it however, and make no apologies.

a little help for the low scoring SAT folks:

colloquialism

\Col*lo"qui*al*ism\, n. A colloquial expression, not employed in formal discourse or writing.
