Intel, Microsoft launch digital home campaign

Intel Corp. and Microsoft Corp., which together have dominated the personal computer industry since the early 1980s, are for the first time running a joint advertising campaign to push their notion of the digital home.

The campaign -- using TV, online, newspaper and movies -- starts today and will show off how entertainment PCs can be used to view photos, listen to music and watch video throughout the home, not just in the den or bedroom where computers are traditionally found.

"We're going directly to the consumers on this," said Bill Calder, an Intel spokesman. "It's definitely an acknowledgment we both view the digital home as critical to our success, and it requires some level of consumer education."

Name that company

I was founded in 1868 on a salt dome island in Louisiana by a guy who made a sauce out of spices from Central America. Legend has it that he packaged the product in used perfume bottles. In 1892, he founded a bird colony on the island to protect egrets that were being killed for their decorative feathers. He soon added plant life, and today his famed Jungle Gardens and Bird City attract visitors from all over the world. My sauce is sold in more than 100 nations. Each of my 2-ounce bottles contains at least 720 drops. Who am I?
