    Let's hope the creativity he comes up with for Intel is better than his utterly ridiculous hair do.

    Oh dear.

    Always seems a little desperate and sad when a company tries to be cool and 'down with the kids' like this. It's a bit like being a kid and watching your Dad try to dance like John Travolta whilst looking ending up looking more like John Prescott.

    Yeah...

    "Nearly everything I do involves processors and computers,"

    Yes, of course it does Mr Am. I was unfortunate to stumble on a video of one of your live performances on youtube the other day... So do Intel chips power autotunes?

    "Creative innovation"?

    I'm sorry, are we still talking about someone connected to the Black Eyed Peas? Sure there's been more boring, derivative, unoriginal recordings that have been bigger wastes of airtime - Milli Vanilli, perhaps - but not many. Hey Intel, get back to us when they've done something worth listening to, yeah?

      They used to be quite good

      ... about 10 years ago. Now they're shit, but do look up their back catalogue.
