Intel got that duh, bum bom bum de
Intel's was good but so many of them doing it now have such shit jingle music that you hate them.
its the fact that its shoehorned into every advert that even mentions intel, or is probably contractually obliged to mention in their adverts
I don't think the Intel tune is crap. They obviously spent money on it.
they'd given up when the CEO's infant daughter played the fateful 5 note streak on her xylophone
(or if not that one it was probably Win 98 or Win XP)
of the trade mark in question.
if its in the terms then they must've put it there
The problem is none of them really have the same situation as Intel. Like Danone don't supply their yoghurts as the filling for some other food so when (I don't know) Tesco advertise yoghurt-filled pop tarts there isn't a need for Danone to have their logo to point out it's got Danone in.
Intel obviously needed theirs to make the point that they were the trusted core of all those computers you bought.
Imagine if you had to use it all the time. So everytime you mentioned intel (bum, bo bum bo bum) you had to make the stupid intel (bum, bo bum bo bum) sound effect, even if it ruined the continuity of your sentence and made you sound less intel(bum, bo bum bo bum)ligent and like some big intel (bum, bo bum bo bum) bummer
