Security for virtualized datacentres

The former chairman of porter firm Guinness, convicted of false accounting back in the early 1990s but then released from clink early after quacks diagnosed Alzheimer's disease, is keen to invest in WAP technology, according to online news service Wap Insight. Since Ernest Saunders was released from jail after serving 10 months, he has embarked on a "successful consultancy career", the newswire reports, and is now a director of a UK mobile phone company. Saunders was spotted at a First Tuesday, a British forum for wannabe dot.com entrepreneurs and investors recently, which focused on the currently excitable WAP market. According to the piece, which you can find here, Saunders wants to act as an angel for would-be wappers. Perhaps mobile phones, rather than being bad for your brain, can actually assist sufferers from the horrible Alzheimer's, which most quacks consider incurable. ®
