Following its introduction at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show, the 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ processor family is being met with praise and recognition from leading publications and was named Best of CES by CNET, LAPTOP Magazine, PC Magazine,, and others. The processors also received editors’ choice awards from Popular Mechanics and Hot Stuff and Best of Show from Gizmodo. The positive response to the new processors is credited to their combination of responsive, adaptive performance with visually smart, seamlessly stunning experiences. In its CES Hot Stuff Awards, Hot Stuff refers to this as “brawn as well as beauty” and in its Best of CES roundup, Huffington Post says that laptops based on 2nd Gen Intel Core “packs more punch”.

On “In Defense of Data,” an online forum aimed at improving data security, Intel Chief Security Officer Malcolm Harkins argues that prohibiting employee activities in an effort to increase laptop data security is pointless. Instead, businesses should “embrace risk,” encourage employee-owned computers, social media access and mobile computing. Personal responsibility and technology – encryption, back-ups and new antitheft technologies – will protect the data.

Imagine the possibilities as a person approaches a digital sign equipped with Intel® AIM Suite capabilities. This software can – totally anonymously – gather basic viewer demographics such as age range, gender and the amount of time a person spends looking at the sign. By analyzing the data in real-time, the software can change the content of signs to align with the viewer’s demographics, meaning consumers can see more targeted, relevant advertising and advertisers can gather more accurate data for tracking return-on-investment. Field trials are being conducted this year. See the press kit for more information.
