Just plain disturbing...

First discovered by the folks at As the Apple Turns (by the way, congrats on the Jeopardy win, Katie!), it appears IBM is posting what can only be described as pseudo-erotic pictures of the PowerPC 970 at their website.

There are four of them, and here are the links, with their disturbing titles (be careful opening the links, I experienced a total processor slowdown while the pages loaded).

- Pervasive : #90 IBM 64-bit PowerPC 970 microprocessor chip with feathers.
- Pervasive : #91 IBM 64-bit PowerPC 970 microprocessor chip with feathers.
- Pervasive : #92 IBM 64-bit PowerPC 970 microprocessor chip in the eye of a peacock feather.
- Pervasive : #93 IBM 64-bit PowerPC 970 microprocessor chip in the eye of a peacock feather.

Honestly, the words disturbing, confusing, frightening, and feather don't even begin to describe whatever the hell these are. The only thing that could possibly make these stranger would be Jimmy Buffet's "Margaritaville" playing in the background (well that or "Cheeseburger in Paradise").

What's even weirder (yes, even weirder) is that these pics are in IBM's Photo Catalog. Apparently we've found this catalog's centerfold.
