  • Intel confirms anti-theft technology for Sandy Bridge

    Intel has confirmed that Sandy Bridge will take aim at corporate computing, introducing upgraded anti-theft technology in the vPro-equipped chips. While precise details of the improved security features are currently under wraps, Intel's David Allen confirmed that [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]they're set to include the ability to remotely disable Sandy Bridge-based systems from a remote administration console.
    Speaking to IT Business, Allen explained that corporate IT departments could configure Sandy Bridge-based laptops to be deactivated on demand, providing a remote 'kill-switch' that enables lost or stolen laptops to be rendered useless remotely.
    While the technology is simply an enhancement of anti-theft technologies already available on some corporate Intel platforms, it's an indication that Intel may be targeting Sandy Bridge at large corporations. Sadly, however, there are currently no signs of the technology appearing at the consumer level, where it could mimick Apple's Mobile Me remote management technology on its iPhone and iPad devices.
    It's a focus that Allen is keen for Intel's OEM and ODM partners to focus on. 'As we go forward into 2011,' stated Allen, 'Sandy Bridge will deliver the security, connectivity and performance options that businesses need, and we'll rely on our channel to help deliver this to the SMB market.'
    Allen also took the opportunity to claim that Intel has nothing to fear from ARM co-founder Hermann Hauser's comments that Intel will be 'obliterated', explaining that the company has long since 'evolved from being a chip company to a computing solutions company with platforms, software and services.'
    Do you like the sound of a laptop you can shut down remotely, or are you worried about what could happen if ne'er-do-wells figure out how to maliciously activate the new security protocols in Sandy Bridge systems?

  • Google’s CR-48 Notebook Hacked To Run Ubuntu

    It has been over a week since Google revealed their Chrome OS Beta program and the much rumoured CR-48 Chrome Notebook. Many thousands have already received the device; even-so Google is still to send out about 50,000 more of these! Because the CR-48 is only a beta device, Google included a ‘jailbreak’ [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]or ‘developer mode’ switch which effectively makes it possible to do anything with the to (reportedly one can install any OS onto it).
    Well, some people have already began to mess around with their devices. A member of the Chrome OS Forums alerted us about this particular video; above you’ll see a person who’s been able to install Ubuntu onto the Cr-48 notebook. This doesn’t come as a massive surprise though as Google had already suggested that this would be possible.
    What’s surprising though is that Google has released their own official guide on how to install Ubuntu onto the Cr-48 Chrome notebook. One would have expected them to be a little more protective of a device that they gave out for free for only one purpose; to test out the Chrome OS Beta.
