    The XBox 360 Xenon CPU has an "AMD" logo on it, but the CPU in the 360 is based on an IBM PowerPC core with an ATI (now AMD) GPU.

    Never, ever again compare phone crappy camera capabilities with pro-grade dSLR. Its beyond compare and nobody who ever took a single picture with dSLR such as Nikon D1 (or have slightest clue about digital photography) would choose cell phone camera over it... ever
