While Intel is definite about launching an Internet TV Service, some of the details are still being processed. The major one of these concerns the epithet this service will have appended to it. . However, with lots of spying and insiders giving information to outsiders, the net result is that the name has been leaked. According to GigaOM, it is to be OnCue. A shell company that works under the tutelage of Intel, Sest, has already made banners, logos and slogans that sport the new name.
There is even an employee at the marketing company, OMD who has worked on the project and leaked out valuable details about it. Intel meanwhile has refused to make any further comments on the matter. All the clues and hints we have received so far seem to point to OneCue as the proper name of the Internet TV Service. OnCue will be fully functional by the end of 2013.
OnCue will feature streaming videos and a long list of network and cable channels. As for the slogan, it is a wonder to behold. It says: “TV has come to its senses”. The whole service will be delivered via a set-top box that comes with a pre-arranged video camera (for purposes of authenticity identification). The Internet TV Service will surely be a hit with the crowd of viewing aficionados who want to give their eyeballs some attention.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
