An interesting tale of Intel investment

Reducing security risks from open source software

Chip giant Intel, which already has more than the number of engineers it needs after it got out of the discreet graphics business, has plunged some of its funds into a Taiwanese startup, Insyde. The company specialises in system level software and BIOS for both Internet appliances and notebook computers, as well as power management. That allows OEM manufacturers to bring their products earlier to market than usual, according to Jonathan Joseph, the CEO of the firm. Both Intel and the China Development Industrial Bank have plunged money into Insyde, but it is unclear exactly how much the investment is. Intel Asia Pacific director Tony Jansz said that one reason for the investment was that Insyde would help his company deploy the "latest technologies" for net based mobile computing. Whatever that means. Insyde also specialises in power management, an area that Intel needs to get into place quickly. Its Geyserville project was originally intended for launch this year, but has flipped over into next. ®
