Web Sites That Suck

Intel. Every year their web site seems to get more ramshackle, more disorganized, more difficult to find anything on it.

All I wanted to do was look up some information on the latest Atom low-power ultra-mobile processors, and, specifically, to compare the features of the various Atom families to see which ones would be best for my application. Instead, I got trapped in a maze of obscure plugins and even more obscure product-family names. I just want my data, I don't want to have to look up obscure Intel code names for processor that everybody just calls "Atom"! Is that too much to ask? Apparently so... sigh.

  1. Intel just seems hell bent on making their product lines seem as obscure as ever. I long for the days when you can look at the product name and clock speed of two chips and know which of the two are the best.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
