I'm a tech geek but I seem to be missing the groupies. I think I will sue Intel for false advertisement and mental anguish.

Is having an Intel Inside sticker like drinking from a Starbucks cup or driving a Ferrari? Are you basically trying to say "Look at the shiny and over-priced things I buy and not my tiny genitalia!"?

I mean seriously, geeks already have over-inflated, yet undeserved egos, Intel doesn't need to encourage us, err... them anymore. Sorry, but your Core i7 965 Extreme w/ 12GB memory and Quad-SLI isn't going to impress the ladies anymore than an AMD.

True. In fact it won't impress most people, geek or not. You're just saying, "Hey, look at the shitiest $3,000 "investment" I ever made. It'll be worth 1/2 in a year!"

Hey dumbass...Marcus wrote the article.
And if you payed attention you will notice that all the comment sections are working this way now (why, I do not know) but the first post always appears to be the sub-headline blurb that is written.

"Ajay Bhatt"

Personal hero of mine. USB saved the world from what could of been a mess of proprietary connectors, that would've easily stopped the tech boom.

I really liked the ad. And being married to a gamer wife I can tell you honestly that big high res screens and fluid gaming matter to her just as much as any of us. Don't confuse gender with hobbies. ;) 

Smart women (usually) want a partner they can talk with at an elevated level about things important in their lives. You can only have sex for so many hours before you rub the skin pretty damn raw, even using excessive lube. And if you accidentally take it that far it can be well over a week before things recover decently. By comparison good conversation and gaming lasts much longer. And being super happy about the person you're with makes the bedroom more enjoyable anyway. Plus its not like you suddenly stop being creative when you walk through the bedroom door.

Additionally its the "geeks" in my age group that seem more likely to still be in good shape and take care of themselves.

I really don't think I could handle having a non geek wife.

Yeah...ummm back to your regular programming.

Please note that the person playing Ajay Bhatt is actually an actor. Intel's marketing team chose to have all of their upcoming "Sponsors of Tomorrow" campaign spotlight their actual people with actors.

Now if we could get all the MP3/4 Player manufactures and Cell Phones to all conform to USB then we could be getting some where. Seriously all we would need to do is put a USB on all new car stereos and everything would instantly work (with the correct drivers of corse) but hell they all have to use their own propriatary crap.

Well, for a company like intel if co-inventor of the USB is THE rock star(of course its a big achievement for a individual) then its time for them to take a serious look at their R&D team.

Also the saving grace would have been to feature the real 'Ajay' in the commercial.

I think intel is doing a great job of alienating themselves from the genpop by revealing a surprisingly elitist egotistical "we're smarter than you are" ad campaign. They say, "our big ideas aren't like your big ideas." Is that so intel? "Aren't like" how? Are you insulting us? Careful....

Love the new Intel ad. Finally the REAL heroes of our society get some recognition. Would have been nice to have the real 'Ajay' in the ad. Was he not photogenic enough for screen? but isnt that the point of this commercial - to showcase the real people. Overall very proud of Intel for having the courage to be different - also we dont see enough diversity in ads - the Asians and South Asians who are contributing so much to technology, medicine and all walks of western life are conveniently excluded from the 'white' dominated media.
