HP HAS BOUGHT VoodooPC
 
Even though you may not know it there is one thing about HP that makes them stand out among the rest: serious innovation. Backed by a $3.5+ billion dollar R&D budget, HP labs was generating an average of eleven unique patents a day. We’re not talking about “supply chain innovations” either; they are sitting on a treasure trove of product innovations with massive potential.

Thanks to Cadaveca for bringing this to our attention!

Sigh. Voodoo are great, I'm not sure this is a good thing. They make wonderful computers, albeit at prices as high as £7,000 ($15,000est).

yeah, 24k gold-plated and all that :rolleyes:

I'm very happy for Voodoo...this could turn into some real great product from Rahul and his crew ;)

Be interesting to have VooDoo back in the game.

Yay. Yet more amalgamation.

Dell buys Alienware.
HP buys Voodoo.

What a battle! =O

I think the word "duopoly" would be more appropriate. Can't take credit for that one tho.

I'm pretty sure 99% of you guys don't really care. I'd be a bit upset if Dell bought out ATI or NV! (Hate to see $400 video cards with crappy caps). :D

I care. This is BIG. There's a very obvious shift in power going on in the industry, in case you hadn't noticed. These are merely the repercussions.
