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

The Register, in the shape of Mike Magee, attended the Intel Developer Forum the week of the 14 September 1998. Here are the major stories we reported from the jamboree in Palm Springs, California. Check this page over the next two weeks: we aim to update it with more technical information. Analysis: Intel’s Basic PC plans could be fatally flawed We take a long hard look at whether Intel’s plans for the sub-$1,000 category, soft DVD and soft modem will create second class PC citizens. Intel’s Craig Barrett outlines PC futures In his keynote speech, CEO Barrett focuses on security and where Intel thinks the PC will land. Katmai out of the bag Albert Yu, general manager in charge of microprocessors, lays out why he feels Katmai is such a good thing in his keynote. He also goes off message again about when we’ll see 370 pin machines… Intel says PCI-X last increment of the bus Mitch Schultz, manager of Intel’s IO division, makes it clear that his company has plans which he claims will last the next 30 years. Intel moves to reassure industry on erratanotbugs According to senior execs, quality assurance in the Great Satanic Mills make it unlikely we shall ever see the like of the FDIV escapee again... Senior Intel executive confirms 370 pin socket by year end Albert Yu, according to insiders, was off message on this Celeron front. We are quality assured that it’s only the OEMs who will get it for Christmas... Intel to expand 370-pin socket to notebooks This one could so easily have slipped the notice of delegates and the press. We pinned down Intel’s general manager of mobiles in a corner and he confirmed what we had already suspected. Microsoft under threat from Intel on data mining front We obtained information from delegates about a Web tool Intel is developing which could undermine Microsoft’s efforts. Intel spells out details of Merced simulation programme In a one-to-one interview with Merced’s chief architect, Rumi Zahir, we learned of Intel’s plans for its IA-64 generation. Intel makes bid to capture security lead Pat Gelsinger, Intel’s general manager of business platforms, told The Register of his company’s plans to implement ten hardware primitives. Here comes Intel’s Miramar We escaped signing the non-disclosure agreement to discover that Intel is readying a 3D graphical user interface aimed at assisting information management. Should Intel be concerned? Intel calls for industry to support post-PCI spec The Great Satan of Chips is not going to be bumped into carrying on with PCI forever, despite the best plans of IBM, Compaq and HP. Intel thinks intelligent fridge will rule roost in 2005 Is this one of Intel’s wackier ideas? The home of the future will be regulated by the PC but if it’s NT 6.0 or NT 7.0, we all ought to be concerned. Microsoft promises NT 5.0 in 1999 -- beta 3 by Thanksgiving Engineer at forum says beta 3 is no turkey and everything is nearly ready. Intel's price axe swings again It's almost impossible to keep up with the price revs in 1998.
