Intel confuses The Register

If you thought Wednesday's article in The Register about Intel's Whitefield processor was confusing (at least Wes F. thought so, and I agree), you should try to read today's article about Intel 'ditching' the Pentium 4 line after Prescott. You tell me whether after reading that article you have any clue what is going on.

This is of course triggered by Intel's confusing strategy, but articles like this only make it worse instead of clearing things up. They should have given these articles the title "We have no clue what Intel is up to, so let us tell you about all the processor code names we know", that would have been more appropriate.
