Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The CEO of Intel has revealed a strange streak in his nature, our correspondent at Comdex, Mike O'Processor, reports.

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.
