Intel CEO Paul Otellini on Thursday said that the company has an advantage over its rival ARM on Windows 8 for tablets because of decades of developing x86 chips that support the Windows operating system. “We think it’s a differentiator,” said Otellini at the company’s investor meeting in Santa Clara, California. “We have the advantage of the incumbency, the legacy support.”
Intel’s only competitor in the Windows 8 tablet market is ARM, whose processors ship in most tablets today. ARM may have an entry point to the Windows tablet market, but faces a tough road ahead considering Intel’s history with Windows, Otellini said.

It should come as no surprise that, with the growth of mobile development and the progression of artificial intelligence and supercomputing, CIOs would at some point be facing a different landscape in IT management. According to ComputerWorld, panelists at the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium encouraged future CIOs to embrace traditional management roles as well as make the most of emerging technologies like social networking, big data, and enterprise mobility.
IBM’s Watson made waves when it competed against–and defeated–established Jeopardy champions Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. While to a number of audience members, Watson seemed like something akin to a parlor trick, industry leaders who had a finger on the pulse of IT saw the value that supercomputers could bring to the business world. And when the banking and healthcare industries began using Watson to crunch data, enterprises that had never put much thought into business analytics started to consider the benefits of studying structured and unstructured data.

According to Jeffrey Voas, the IEEE Fellow and computer scientist at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), there are harmful malwares in more than 2,000 free apps currently available, and Voas says that almost 1 in 100 free apps in 2012 will visibly contain malware — and there are possibilities for even more malware which will be beyond immediate detection.
