Frequently Asked Questions

December 1998 This is a wonderful Intel Art submission by one of my anonymous readers. This excellent graphic depicts Apple users idolizing the Intel bunny-people. It also demonstrates just how "hot" Intel processors really have become.

This graphic is available in three different sizes (the original is wider than 1000 pixels). The two smaller versions are available at 1000 and 800 pixels wide respectively. However, the text might be harder to read on these smaller graphics.

November 1998 Recently, Intel annoused that they would use Homer Simpson as their new public spokesman. This seemed fitting to me, as Homer SImpson might actually add some credibility to Intel's public relations efforts.

Therefore it was timely and appropriate to feature this Intel Art submission by one of my readers. Like many other Intel Art submissions, the reader wanted to remain anonymous. This really makes you wonder why everybody is so afraid of Intel?

October 1998 Have you ever wonded what those yo-yo's in the Intel bunny suits are doing when they're not on those TV commercials? This Intel Art of the Month submission will help answer that question.
September 1998 Depending on who you are and your perspective of Intel, you might look at Intel's web site in a variety of ways. Some people might see Intel's web site confusing and hard to navigate. Others might see Intel's web site much like they see a company bent on taking advantage of the proletariate masses.

This Intel Art of the Month submission comes from a different perspective. This submission shows Intel's web site from the perspective of a Televangelist. If a picture is worth a thousands words, then to some, this might be the message behind Intel's web site.

August 1998 Look no further for proof that the Celeron processor was actually intended to ruin your system performance.

This boxed processor was found at a local computer store in its pre-release packaging. Once Intel discovered the packaging error, they recalled it back to the factory for correction. In 20 years, this package will be a collectors item, much like the "Butcher Cover" of the Beatles Yesterday and Today album.

July 1998 When armageddon comes, it will look like this.

Industry sources have confirmed that the first battle of amrageddon will take place at 2200 Mission College Blvd. in Santa Clara, California. According to these sources, the first strike will come at midnight, in Y2K.

June 1998 Apparently somebody didn't exactly appreciate last month's Intel Art of the Month. They decided to modify last month's Intel Art submission into this masterful parody. Naturally, they wanted to remain anonymous.

From my perspective, this is great. The last few submissions have been masterful creative works, all in the name of fun. I'm delighted to be the host of this fun. However, it kind of makes me feel like a press reporter accepting leaked depositions and then reporting the news as if I didn't know who leaked it.

May 1998 This Intel Art of the Month submission features an Intel Bunny-Geek walking over to a motherboard containing an AMD microprocessor. Upon seeing the AMD processor, the Intel Bunny-Geek stomps on the processor and raises his hands in victory.

Who says that I don't play fair with Intel and their competitors? I thought this art submission was so funny, it deserved immediate attention (even though I have many submissions still waiting publication).

April 1998 One of my readers (whose name will remain anonymous) is a notebook computer manufacturer. In an effort to explain to his customers that the Pentium II is not well suited in notebook applications, he crafted this graphic.

The graphic shows one of the Intel Bunny-GeeksTM holding a burning-hot Pentium II. The submitor intends to demonstrate that the Pentium II has many thermal issues when used in notebook applications.

March 1998 The Intel Art submissions get funnier by the month. This month is no exception.

An anonymous reader sent this outrageous efigy of one of the famous Bunny-People (TM -- if you can believe that).

Apparently, my reader had some pent up agression and decided to expend it on the bunny-geek.

February 1998 Back when the trademark dispute errupted between Intel and this web site, Intel Corporation unleashed their spin doctors to discredit and slander this web site. In an article by the Associated Press, Intel claimed that I had "tarnished (their) logo." Even more to the point, Intel claimed in an article by the San Jose Mercury News that "What (I've) done is the legal equivalent of spray-painting a building."

Spray painting a building? Indeed.

If that's the way they think, then I wonder what they'll think about this outrageous Intel Art of the month submission.

January 1998 Keeping in mind, our last month's Intel art submission, I thought this month's edition would be a natural follow-up. This month's Intel Art was found on C/Net's web site: http://www.news.com.

This artwork shows Intel's famed trademark in a not-so-flattering light. I wonder if Intel's legal department is stupid enough to take on C/Net. (They probably are.)

Anyways, I thought it would be interesting to contemplate Intel's position with respect to C/Net. After all, Intel has a history of bullying people that can't stand up for themselves...but would they bully a company that they have funded?

December 1997 Apparently, Intel's sophomoric legal department hasn't yet discovered the meaning of the 1st Ammendment of the US Constitution. These gals continue their threats and intimidation tactics against anybody that doesn't know how to stand up to them.

I heard through the grapevine that this Intel Art submission was threatened with legal action if it wasn't removed from a reader's web site. Well Intel...it's back, on the Intel Secrets Web Site.

November 1997 This month's Intel Art was supplied by a reader of this web site. The reader, who wishes to remain anonymous, found that Intel Pentium II van running amok on the city streets.

See this artwork to see what happens when those Bunny People (idiotic-TM) clashed with a Pedestrian. Rumor has it, that the pedestrian was wearing an Intel Secrets(TM) T-Shirt. I wonder if the Bunny People did this intentionally?

October 1997 When I found this piece of artwork, I nearly fell over from laughter. I said "can you get me a copy of that picture?" Since my friend couldn't find the owner of the picture, or where it actually came from, he decided to give me the picture itself.

Later, I found that the picture is part of the Doctor Fun series of comics.

August 1997 This is a masterful and timely submission to my "Intel Art of the Month" column. The Author created a graphic for the special occasion off the new Pentium II Math Bug.
June 1997 This is a masterful and timely submission to my "Intel Art of the Month" column. The Author created a graphic for the special occasion off the new Pentium II Math Bug.
May 1997 The author of this site contacted me to boast of his unique brand of Intel Art. In the past, I know Intel has sent these types of artists Cease and Desist letters (thinking that they own the Constitutional interpretation of the 1st Amendment). If Intel is truly as
non-partisan as they claimed, then Larry should be receiving a nasty letter very soon.
