Top three mobile application threats

Only a few days after it spent $1.27 billion buying the Lego-like building blocks which will make it a major player in the Internet revolution, Intel (ticker: INTC) is at it again. The company has just announced it will pay $450 million in cash for Basis, a firm involved in Internet access systems, and which has a particular interest in the home and small to medium business markets. The cash payment is part of Intel's strategy to grow its IX network infrastructure. In the last 18 months, the firm, which was traditionally a microprocessor only firm, has made a series of acquisitions involving billions of dollars, often in cash, to buy up the bits and pieces that make the Internet run. This puts them head to head against the Nortels and Ciscos of this world. Basis produces so-called residential routers and gateways, but it also has technology for PC card, interface and wide area network products. It has sites in Shannon, Eire, as well as Westford, in the US. ® See also Intel buys Giga AS for $1.25 billion Intel mycelium: the spores bud Intel acquires another company as IX mycelium spreads
