Credit card thieves setting up safe seller certifications

Capitalism and free markets at its finest. The oversight seems to have sprung out of a common need. No player big enough to game the system.

Re: Here's the specs

Why the numerical keypad? I never use it and I don't think granny is heavy on data entry either. It's useless and just clutters the design. Typical of non-design-driven companies though (i.e. pretty much all but Apple) who just keep dragging along the old "features". Only if you look at smaller (i.e. 13") and thus more expensive laptops (except this ChromeBook I am writing on) the numerical keypad is gone and possibly then only because it didn't really fit.

ARM server chip upstart Calxeda bites the dust in its quest for 64-bit glory

Re: $90m - where did the money go?

$90m was not all salaries.

Calxeda designed and got fabbed two complete server SoC's (ECX-1000 w. Cortex-A9 and ECX-2000w. Cortex -A15) with their own fabric (to connect multiple SoC's). That cost a lost.

They are (were) a startup with a specific idea, what should management have done before the money ran out? Started chasing some other idea?

Calxeda is not the only company developing ARM-based server SOC's.

Just because you can "explain" it doesn't mean it is no longer abnormal.

Kaspersky Lab to create new OS 'to save the world'

qbix

you are not alone

There are already operating systems which claim to be secure, e.g. commercial like Green Hills Integrity and academic like OS' s based on the L4 micro kernel.

What's the unique selling point of the KL secure OS? Developed in Russia?
