Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

As reported here earlier this year, Intel will shift its Pentium III platform to a socketed design during the course of the summer. (Story: Intel says new socket on way iMac lookalikes) That is in line with Intel's .18 micron Coppermine plans, revealed here yesterday. Although the company is keeping tight lipped about the exact specification, it is likely that early systems (and motherboards) will be shown at the Computex trade show in Taiwan in June. (We will be attending). A source close to Intel's plans confirmed the socket was currently in design, as part of the company's plans for the "sexy looking" machines it showed at the Intel Developer Forum. You will notice that if you a look at a Pentium III slot chip, it does not have the name on the cartridge. Intel does not want the world to identify Slot One with the PIII. Later this evening, Intel will release its financial results. We will carry that story when it breaks. ® See also Intel Developer Forum coverage
