Processor or deputy prime minster?

I touched on this way back in February but today’s Pass Notes has also picked it up. Intel’s new processor, which will be capable of clock speeds of 3.8Ghz, is currently codenamed ‘Prescott’. And as Brits will know, our deputy prime minister (Tony Blair’s stand-in) is John Prescott. Apparently Intel didn’t think about the UK market when naming its technology previews.
My new word for the day is ‘syllogism’. An example of one, is ‘All humans are mortal. I am a human, therefore I’m mortal’, or, as Jo Brand puts it, ‘All men have bollocks. All men talk, so all men must talk bollocks.’.
And with that I’m off to bed to watch the rest of QI.
