After I loaded McAfee on one of my computers, I could not get rid of it. I understand the need for security, but I refuse to turnover complete control of my system to someone else. There are many ways in which a secure working environment can be implemented for home and business systems. The latest McAfee approach is not one of them. I now consider their software as dangerous as any virus I ever accidentally loaded. Just my opinion.

The computer resources devoted to fighting Malware are staggering - often greater than the time the computer spends doing "productive" work. Anything that can be done to improve security and CPU availability for the hapless human user would be much appreciated. Furthermore, current malware checking software is the cause of an inordinate number of computer lock-ups and issues. That said, the fundamental issue I see with hardware security is that it is relatively "fixed". When hackers have a stationary target, they can be devastating.

This whole security issue should be solvable. I like Intel's approach but we're up against some big issues that are designed to make commerce more convenient. But the problem isn't convenience itself. The problem is that making the most profit out of every click, transaction, whatever, is what's turning into the PRIMARY driver of technology.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
