Today is war, tomorrow is peace
But when will this end,
Peace prevails today and war tomorrow,
The human heart is not sad …
– The Control Group sang in the ’80s, and somehow reminded me of the above
– PC vs Mac about a back and forth prick and mouthpiece through commercials that occurred between Mac and PC at the time. (Roughly the same standard as what’s happening now as a “war” between PC and console players, and within consoles, PlayStation and Xbox.)
“Macdoegless!” (Intel Corporation)
It is often said that only stuffed cabbage is good when heated, but Intel will argue about it (if you understand Hungarian cuisine …), because now it has “heated up” the long-extinct fire of war by contracting with Apple The previous “I am a Macintosh”.

Intel appears to be ready to take on the first Apple chips with raucous and hostile marketing, while clearly failing to make a real breakthrough with its Rocket Lake-S chips. Meanwhile, Intel’s new CEO, Pat Gelsinger, has made it clear that Intel will have to beat Apple in the future. They were already involved in the oral karate field …
