VIIV is something from Intel to say that the requirements for a Media Center PC is passed. In other words, a waste of stickers.

basically every new PC out now is capable of being a media centre. you don't need a whole lot of power to watch DVD's and stuff.

EXACTLY. Only this time it's more DRM based.

I'm tired of this buzz word slogan crap. This is why I freaking hate Intel.

Taken from a Staples ad - "It's got Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology, so you can take it pretty much anywhere."

WTF does having a Core Duo processor and a wireless internet card have ANYTHING to do with where you can take it??

Bluetooth *ENABLED*
Microsoft Windows Vista *CAPABLE*

OMG the whole "enabled" and "capable" thing is the worst for me, I just want to strangle people who buy into that @#$%.

I also hate really long names, for example Microsoft Windows XP Media Centre Edition 2005, Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional, Intel Centrino Duo Mobile Technology, <- GAH!!

Wait, I know centrino is bs and nothing, but what does Intel say it does ? Whenever I go to intel.com I end up reading 10 pages of crap to figure something out so I never cared.
