Go Android, Intel...
Sad to see the little orphan drifting downstream.
Meego was never going to make it unless Intel were prepared to take on the securitisation of the OS. To extend the analogy, the prospect of college fees proved too much for the rich uncle. Perhaps this is because Intel would be robbing revenue from its new acquisition, McAfee. The truth is the anti-virus companies are essentially turd-polishers, and this will not do for neither mobile nor automotive - waiting for inevitable exploits and shutting the stable door.
Google are in a much better position to offer real security,they are ahead of the game because they can monitor the channels, build blacklists, set up alarm triggers etc. Basically they can own the problem.
In return, the combination of Intel and Google should be able, between them, to fight off the patent warfare and guarantee the long-term viability of Android.
So, lets hope for some secure-booting silicon from Intel and a secure, self-maintaining infrastructure from Google. Oh, and between them, a major adversary to the ridiculous patent trolling that may yet crush our information age.
