Intel Moves into Web Software

What do you do if your processor monopoly is being steadily eroded by AMD? Why, get into software, of course!

To do so, Intel is pulling out every Web 2.0 buzzword in the book, including Web 2.0 itself, wikis, open source, RSS and blogs.

But Intel didn't turn hardware hacks into software jocks. Instead, it gathered tools from various software vendors to build a suite for small and medium-sized companies.

Included in the suite are RSS tools from SimpleFeed and NewsGator, wikis from Socialtext, and blogging from Six Apart.
