WrongSizeGlass writes: ARS is reporting on Intel's walled garden plan to put A/V vendors out of business. In a nutshell, Intel wants to run only trusted code to run on x86 systems. Intel's Paul Otellini framed the purchase of McAfee as an effort to move the way the company approaches security "from a known-bad model to a known-good model." Depending how enamored you are of Apple's App Store model, where only Apple-approved code gets to run on your iPhone, you may or may not be happy in Intel's planned utopia.
Thus mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know
what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
