“Sure, I could get a Mac, but the time I spend with my daughter removing spyware is very precious.” A great line, already being attributed to Intel CEO Paul Otellini, but actually penned by Good Morning Silicon Valley’s John Paczkowski on the GMSV blog.

However Paczkowski was reporting on words actually uttered by Otellini, who, following his disclosure to the Wall Street Journal that he spends an hour a weekend removing spyware from his daughter’s computer, and being pressed by the reporter as to whether an Apple computer were more secure than a Windows Intel machine, responded, “If you want to fix it tomorrow, maybe you should buy something else.”


While at first blush this seems a startling disclosure from the CEO of one of the largest providers of Windows platform hardware, many are suggesting that this is a very clever move, and no slip of the tongue. Rumours had already been swirling that Intel and Apple were in discussion, and indeed there is further rumour of a Dell CPU already running Mac OS X.

While the rumour mill will grind, Aunty finds it much more interesting, and revealing, that even the CEO of Intel seems unable to stop the unrelenting onslaught of spyware in his own home.

Hopefully Mr. Jobs will see this wonderful PR opportunity, and courier over an iMac to Mr. Otellini’s home.
