In this second episode of the Dan & David Show, we discuss the news from Intel's Developer Forum, including the new dual core, power chips due next year that it wants to crush AMD with and the VIIV sticker (think Centrino) that Intel wants to stick on

entertainment PCs that use specific Intel parts and software, as well as Microsoft Media Center Edition. Of course, a show can't go by without talking about Google, and I share my experiences with the freshly minted Google Talk, and we ruminate on whether Google is a new Microsoft, salivating over annexing new software territory, or just doing what comes naturally for an engineering-focused company born of the Web. David also rants about cellular carriers who are turning off smartphone features. All this and more in about 10 minutes of crisp audio that can be delivered directly to your desktop or MP3 player if you're subscribed to our podcasts (See ZDNet’s podcasts: How to tune in), or if you want you can just download  the MP3.  Let us know what you think.
