Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

News wire Reuters is reporting that the CEO of Intel, Craig Barrett, has at last made a statement on the i820 chipset. Speaking in Seoul, which he visited yesterday, Barrett told the press that the i820 will ship in a couple of weeks. This will hopefully prevent local Intel spin doctors from chanting the mantra: "The i820 will ship in Q4," and instead allow them to say the i820 will ship in a couple of weeks. Intel will use the Comdex/Fall jamboree to make a song and dance about the ill-fated chipset, which has dogged the company's fortunes during the whole of 1999. But the world+dog is more likely to be interested in the introduction of an AMD Athlon 750MHz part, which is also likely to be introduced around the same time. The news service, Reuters, did not report whether or not Barrett was talking to his chums at the memory semiconductor companies while he was chewing on his kimchi and quaffing his sojo. But we'd think it highly likely he took time out to re-assure them of Intel's best intentions. ®
