Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

That the creaky old Pentium II is on the slippery slope to the chip gulag can be in little doubt as Chipzilla knocks a few more bucks off on Sunday night (no respect for the Sabbath, these guys). PII 400's drop to $234 from $246 and the entry-level 350 is now a snip at just $163. Sources close to Intel reckon that the 350 has now seen its last price cut and is not expected to live to see another Autumn. No price moves are expected on other parts for at least a couple of weeks until the stopgap Pentium III 550 part is expected to put its head above the parapet and the PIII 500 and 450 will start to look a bit more attractive price-wise. ®
