Creative teases mystery Zii

A teaser for something called Zii was sent out by Creative, a company known for soundcards, mentioning the ambitious sounding and pretend terminology "stemcell computing". Updated 3:47pm: iTunes Competitor?

The website referenced at zii.com has this info:
• The words "Zii". (Can assume that Nintendo's Lawyers are powering up.)
• The words "Everything you know is about to change".
• The text Stemcell (as one word, not two).
• Four leaf clovers that sparkle.
• The font for "Z" on Zii is some weird and terrible design that is also probably used for the Z on the neon sign of every shitty club called Zanzibar from Boston to Hawaii.

Entering this data into the generally infallible Gizmotronic super computer (A cluster of Dreamcasts and US Robotics 56k modems, connected over RJ-45) I've calculated to 99.5% probability that Creative Labs is getting into gadget cloning as a way to remain competitive in the mp3 player market, a market they were relevant in in 2001. They're going to use this tech to master the design methodology of 10th party Chinese knock off firms and save on research and development costs. And they will first clone another iPod and late in 2009 they'll get ambitious and clone the iPod Touch named Dolly the ipoddy

Re: Creative teases mystery Zii

The company posts very little but suggests that the device revolves around the concept of "stemcell computing," suggesting that it may involve distributed computing or a parallel to the hardware or software of the Nintendo Wii. Aside from this, the firm only makes the claim that "everything you know is about to change" and provides no clues outside of four-leaf clover graphics.

Re: Creative teases mystery Zii

When Creative will unveil Zii is equally unknown, though the teaser has surfaced just ahead of CES in early January and provides the earliest major opportunity for the company's planned launch.
