    the reason I found this so interesting is that we don't know the details about the architecture of the chip, the folks at IBM DO.
    I'm a CSE (computer science engineer) and to say that the wii, the 360 or even the PS3 have more computing power than my desktop PC just for the speed of the processor or the amount of memory on the console has no real grounds. Even if you're IBM's CEO. It's like comparing oranges and apples.

    Gaming consoles have processors streamlined to gaming and memory dedicated to gaming. If you could (and probably you can't) for example try to run a Financial or Accountable application with moderate complexity your PS3 will probably crash 10 out of 10 times or your Wii would fry its floating point processor.

    No way to compare one to another.

    Consumers now have more computing power plugged into their televisions than they have in the PCs sitting on their desks.

    NOTE: 'computing power'

    While a car has more power than a blender, it still can't chop food.

    Just as these processors may not be designed for financial software, they still have more power.

    IBM designs, developes and produces a range of processors for many purposes and have for some time, I have a feeling that they know what they are talking about.

    Im also in Computer Science.

    Computing power in my experience doesnt mean anything. Thats like saying "the power of an earth quake in japan is greater than that of an asteroid orbiting the moon".

    Btw propaganda :

    That email was sent to all employees. There is a reason someone with a salary spent time writting it and emailing it to everyone. Think about it.

    cyn·ic (sĭn'ĭk) Pronunciation Key
    n.

    1. A person who believes all people are motivated by selfishness.
    2. A person whose outlook is scornfully and often habitually negative.

    NOTE: The email was not sent to all employees, just the ones up in Burlington, because it wasn't sent from some high salary CEO, just the vice pres. of the plant, I've been there many times, it's a big place but it's made up of teams of people who are doing a very fine job, nothing needs to be deliberately spread about for some underlying purpose. They thought it was cool like anyone else would that one of their projects was for interactive games, so they got some systems for everyone to play.

    PS: I will much sooner trust the proffesionals at one of the largest technology companies in the world then some people on wiichat.com who work in 'computer science', especially since I have seen these people and been to picnics with them etc.

    ig·no·rant
    1. lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man.
    2. lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact: ignorant of quantum physics.
    3. uninformed; unaware.
    4. due to or showing lack of knowledge or training: an ignorant statement.


    That email cost money. Companies and corporations are always looking at their net profit. Every action represents a risk vs profit scenario. They aren't going to do something (even as simple as witting an email) if it's not going to profit them.

    Its called being logical, not cynical.

    this goes well with my choice definition too, thanks for the help!

    can anyone else think of other words that might describe this fellows argument?

    My argument isn't what you've quoted. The fact that you are attacking me personally and not my argument shows how IGNORANT you are.

    cool down, guys...We all love wii right? So it is OK it has more or less computing power or can or cannot run financial software. Let's talk about fun

    good call.

    In conclusion, the wii has a nice graphics processor but it's not more powerful than a blender.
