New hybrid storage solutions

The CEO of Intel has revealed a strange streak in his nature, our correspondent at Comdex, Mike O'Processor, reports. Skulking around the edge of the show, Mike noticed Esther Fison, the famous journalist, participating in an incorrect hour with a not very funny American comedian called Bill Maher. Barrett made an indirect reference to UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and his sidekick Peter Mandelson when he suggested that the Post Office should be shut down in favour of PC terminals. Mandelson is notoriously non-PC ready. He got back from a trip to the US four weeks ago and pronounced himself rapturously in favour of the Internet. Pity he didn't have a PC in his office at the Department of Trade and Industry then... Barrett said that governments should mind their own business and not interfere with Internet content. Strange, then, that Intel employees, unless they are senior spin doctors, are not allowed to view Former and Current Employees of Intel. Libertarianism has its limits then, even with Intel. * Register Oid µ As we went to press, we had an email from a senior Intel employee who says there is now no restriction on the URL above. So maybe Craig has seen the light? It's always nice to see someone converted from five volts to 3.3 volts...or even 1.9, which is the cuttlefish...®
