Microsoft not involved in Lenovo blocking Linux

There’s a story going round that Lenovo have signed an agreement with Microsoft that prevents installing free operating systems. This is sensationalist, untrue and distracts from a genuine problem.

Intel delays USB 3 chipsets until 2012

Intel announced it will wait an additional year before adopting the newer, faster USB 3.0 format by delaying the format’s motherboard chipset. This recent news announcement will likely only anger some of Intel’s OEM partners, as the companies look to try and integrate USB 3.0 support into new product lineups. The USB 3.0 format was first introduced in November 2008, but many people doubted...
