re: Low-power webinars worth watching

"Learn about Apache Design’s Ultra-Low-Power, Advanced Reliability, Chip-Package-System and 3D-IC design solutions including RedHawk-3DX our latest power sign-off platform enabling 3GHz+ ICs designed using billions of gates in complex 3D/2.5D architectures." That says that the webinar is about a very specific product and some gee-whiz numbers. I'd move right along if that was the only thing to guide me.

I would not have signed up for these because the description, to me, reads as if it is a marketing and sales pitch and makes it sound as if the only thing you will learn is how their tools solve a problem. Most of the time in these Webinars is spent describing what the problem is, why it is an issue rather than just how our tool solves a problem.

Good points as always Brian. I wouldn't commit 30+ minutes to a webinar if I could get the same information by taking two minutes to read a press release :) As someone who has been on both sides of the webinar process, I'm interested to know why you feel 'it was obvious' why so few people had signed up in this case. Maybe we can all learn from that additional insight.
