^ So you can do twice as much as a dual-core?

I can't see any reason why advancement in computer hardware would be a bad thing. IT IS ALWAYS GOOD. You might not need it now, but then again, you don't NEED a computer.

the problem the article mentioned about each core communicating with each other and their respective caches could be a real problem, think of it like a building. anyone ever heard of how in the past buildings where limited to about 10 stories by the stone foundations they used and how it would have to get wider and wider to support estra stories, eventually taking up too much room on the ground floors? sounds like what might happen with cache structure. they can't keep adding cache for cores to communicate, so where to now?

Fix that problem, by putting all the cores on one die, and calling it the Core 3 series.

You think Intel is in this for making good processors, or for making money?

Well, if you use up a dual core e6600... even at stock... congrats to you :P you must be hardcore! Unless you do video editting and converting all the time, I understand that then.
