Corned Beef

A look at the dictionary informed me that corned beef is brined/spiced beef. Pastrami, on the other hand is smoked/spiced-seasoned beef shoulder. Do you Chowhounds have any more specific insites into the methods and origins of these two deli & sandwich favorites. I think in many people's minds, the two are very similar.
