Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Let no one accuse Psion's founder David Potter of lacking a sense of humour.  In the parallel universe of ZDNet News UK, a strange and shadowy world where year-old facts are "disclosed", or breathlessly  "revealed" ... or just made up, Potter has been having some fun at the expense of the channel and Richard Barry, its accident-prone editor.

ZDNet reports Potter as saying "I should also tell you, though I cannot give you details, that there is an implementation of Epoc on another processor as well - which I'm not going to mention!". This teaser was enough to send our friends spinning into a frenzy of speculation about just what this might be. Taking up the mystery is Matthew Boersma, the hack who gave Pat Gelsinger a sex-change last week. "Potter said there is already an implementation of Epoc on a non-ARM processor, which he declined to name," Boersma reports. Casting around for some likely silicon, the loves heroically spin this one into an impending deal with MIPS. Unfortunately... Psion's Symbian partner Motorola is in on the conspiracy. Sixteen months ago it surreptitiously put out a press release just to throw ZDNet off the scent. The press release describes how Motorola is porting Epoc to its M-Core processors. ®
