Intel has quietly registered two new trademarks, giving an indication of its future plans.
As far as we can see, Itanium is a very wide ranging trademark which covers, amongst other things, operating system software, operating programs, system extensions, software for connecting PCs, computer hardware, integrated chips, circuit boards, fax/modems and microprocessors.
The list is huge, so it must be an important one.
And 'Intel PlaY' is possibly even more interesting. It also has the alternative name 'In Tell Play'. According to the application, it represents:
"Hand held unit for playing video games; video output toys and games; electronically operated toys; interactive computer toys and games; computer networked toys and games; computer peripheral toys and games; electronic games."
So maybe Intel is taking the Playstation II more seriously than we thought.
