Silicon Sacrement

All this commercial needs is some wine to go with the "wafer" ...

The new Apple/Intel TV ad is on-line, and there is something semi-humourous in a cheesy sort of way when they handle the big silicon wafer with the same reverence that one might expect when the BIg Gold Albums were loaded onto Voyagers I and II.

The real humour for us retrogrouches, however, is the call-back to the time when the Intel "bunnies" were the source of mocking and derision from the gang in Cupertino - a far cry from the church-like veneration seen here. What comes around goes around, I guess.
