    Is it just me or is the following quote rather funny:

    "The acquisition will enable developers in the digital animation and game communities to take advantage of Intel's innovation and technology leadership in the creation of digital media."

    What is innovative about a huge company buying a smaller company (not that Havok are all that small) to fill a gap in their portpholoio, MS, Sony, EA, etc have been doing this for years.

    They mean Havok will have access to Intel's technology and innovation (past and future). Intel produce some outstanding compilers and profiling tools. Technologically at least, this is good for Havok.
