    Oh well, let's see what they can come up with now...still quite silly, in my opinion.

    Naughty, naughty, nVidia helping out Cell. I thought I defeated that monster :D

    Seriously though, for them it's arguably a good business move...expanding into new markets. As long as they can keep up with the demand... It's a strategy many Japanese companies have been engaged in for some time. For instance a company (Mitsubishi) which makes cars, can also make electronics and products in other industries altogether. They've arguably taken this to a degree nVidia has not thus far.

    Somehow, I'm not sure I would want embeded Windows in a pace maker or life support device, if I were relying on it. The term BSOD would also seem in bad taste, if something went wrong :eek:
