Intel One name was conspicuously absent from the list of companies backing Google's WebM project and the VP8 codec. Despite other chip makers and designers being on the list, like AMD, NVIDIA, ARM, and Qualcomm, Intel didn't make an appearance. Yesterday, the company made its first careful commitment to the WebM project.

Right, my mistake; but Intel’s words are still just PR. Of all the companies Google have managed to get backing from at least some hardware must come out of it. They know YouTube/WebM is coming and that’s a big money-spinner if you can claim to have the best performance / battery life when it comes to YouTube.
