Intel Intel Intel. Did they have to choose a D and thereby make the English sound 'why die'? Why not, Why Tie? as in WiTi Wireless TV? I appreciate D is better from an engineering point of view, as its primary purpose is unlikely to be TV streaming, but it would be (supposedly) subconciously innocuous.

I wonder am I alone in this, or would most English speakers feel uncomfortable purchasing or requesting a 'why die' device?

Probably just me but if I were Intel marketing I'd change it as soon as possible for the mk2 version. Also if TV mfrs get on board as you imply they might, that would be awesome.

Simple really: because WiDi is not solely for televisions, it can work with monitors as well so why limit the name? WiDi is the accurate title. WiTi (Why Tie) sounds equally odd to me.

I don't read it as "why die" like WiFi but with a D, I read it like mainland Europeans read WiFi - "wiffy", so personally I read it as widdy.

and as already ready stated its WiDi because its short for wireless display because that's what it is, a wireless display, its basically apples airplay for everyone else and android phones can be WiDi enabled so TV as such doesn't come into it.

WiFi = Wireless Fidelity...
WiDi = Wireless Display...

This looks like a pretty decent product for ONE display at a time... I'm also researching for the use case where you have TWO or even THREE!
