Mobile application security vulnerability report

Terry Shannon, the inveterate DEC and Compaq watcher, is once more allowing us to steal some of his stuff from DECUS in San Diego. If you dig deep, you can find his daily update at Shannon knows Compaq. The veteran reporter tells us in his latest communique from the front line that up to 7,000 jobs might go at the Big Q real soon now. Around 500 of those job losses are to do with the decking of Alpha NT by the Big Q. Compaq has also reiterated its support for the Alpha processor. According to the boys and girls at Q Centrale, the first microprocessor refresh will be an 833MHz EV68 system. WildFire, says Compaq, will scale to 48 of the Alpha chip. Shannon reports that Linuxmen and Linuxwomen are going berserk at DECUS, with Jon "Mad Dog" Hall doing his stuff at the conference. Linux has now been demoed both on big quad Alpha systems as well as the Compaq eight-way Proliant, which uses Intel's profusion technology. For the full daily round-up, check out Shannon's site. ®
