Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Psion, the British maker of palmtop computers and modems, and the provider of much of Symbian's operating system technology, today announced the resignation of Harold Goddijn, MD of its Psion Computers business unit. Godson was made MD less than a year ago, but appears to have tarred his brush earlier this year when the company was forced to admit that the upcoming successor to the ill-fated Series 5 organiser would not begin making Psion money until the second half of the year. Psion hasn't said why Goddjin's going, but it's hard to imagine that didn't have something to do with it. Clearly the Pfeiffer Factor is catching. Goddjin's replacement is Psion CEO David Levin, who took over from company founder and chairman David Potter on 22 February (see Psion founder steps back). Given the poor results Psion's other business unit, Psion Dacom, is expected to show this year -- it issued a major profit warning back in February -- we wonder if MD Gareth Hughes would care to resign in favour of Levin, to allow him to complete his hat-trick. ®
