Top three mobile application threats

Yesterday we reported CompaQ was working on a 128 bit Alpha and got lots of criticism for reporting the truth. Maybe Compaq has read Intel's document on how to deal with the press. This was the latest on DEC Alpha and its workstations. Compaq's spin doctor in the UK said: "You must be wrong about this." We said: "Oh no we're not." In fact we were dead right about 128b Alpha chips. Before the Great Satan of Haircuts took over Bob Palmers's Digital, a team was working on graphics chips that would work at 128 bits especially on workstations. We know that for a fact. It makes for wicked, non Intel workstations. Unfortunately, Eckhard Pfeiffer, now CEO of Compaq-Digital-Tandem stopped the project. Is Pfeiffer an IA64 man or not, we wonder? Ask Hans Geyer, from Intel (now in Folsom). (Story: The Register Number Five -- Pfeiffer attacks Intel for monopolistic practices) ®
