Evolving Windows Platform

Yesterday the Windows Vista Team blog had the official announcement about SP1 and now a day later the PR Team rolls into action.

Microsoft PR has yet to respond to the WGA worldwide glitch last weekend, luckily the Windows Genuine Advantage Team quickly responded on their blog.

Intel vPro 2.0

Intel today announced further reinforced desktop PC security on the newest generation of Intel vPro processor technology for enterprise businesses with new innovations that add better protection against hacking, viruses and other threats.

Security features included in this latest Intel vPro processor technology formerly codenamed Weybridge are designed to protect against software-based attacks and also filter and defend against viruses and other threats.

I listened in on an Intel Press Briefing last Thursday on the Weybridge Launch to which there was an embargo agreement not to publish till this morning. Reuters violated the agreement on Friday evening and released three stories outside the jurisdiction of the USA just to get the jump on everyone elce.
