Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

IBM will update its Aptiva consumer PC range tomorrow (Thursday) with the launch of both high and low-end models. At the high-end is the Corba, a Pentium II Aptiva system which is the second attempt by IBM to enter the "luxury" home PC market. In 1997 IBM flopped with the launch of its industrial design and high performance "Stealth" PCs at a time when users wanted cheaper models. IBM lost market-share in the home market as a result of the miscalculation. IBM is also covering the low-cost market with the launch of a low-cost version of the Aptiva built around the up-coming 350-MHz k6-2 processor from AMD. ®
