Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Tadpole Technology has hived off its hardware business into a separate subsidiary, Called Tadpole-RDI, the business combines Tadpole’s Unix laptop manufacturing arm, with RDI, the Californian rival acquired from TriGem in August. The Americans appear to be running the show at Tadpole RDI - Carlsbad, California is the headquarters of the operation and the senior appointments carry American nomenclature – president this, and il vice-presidente that. Tadpole RDI is a monopoly by default, rather than by design, as RISC chip powered laptops is not a game many people want to play. As proud owner of the tiny Unix hardware laptop market, with SPARC and PA RISC iterations, the company should make money. But that’s a wait and see. Tadpole Technology’s other operating busines, Cartesia, supplies Java-based field information systems for telcos and utilities. We’re not sure what that means either, but Tadpole expects great things from the software. The latest version gets its first airing this week at a trade show at Birmingham’s NEC. ®
