    Yay, Intel want us to adopt built-in 5G connectivity... what are the odds that presumably it can't be deactivated at a base level, you know, so those built-in security flaws "accidently" left by Intel can be fully exploited without annoying security software getting in the way monitoring and blocking ports and the like. Too cynical? Moi?

    Well, as much as I enjoy seeing people stir the pot, it's hard to suggest that adding 5G is primarily something Intel wants to do to provide backdoors. Nobody builds houses just to provide a service spying on bathrooms.
    Um, I hope.

    After ME and Spectre and Meltdown and every other recent revelation have gone public, there may yet be the faintest chance that they will implement it properly.

    5G... considering I can't even get 4G where I live, and 3G isn't exactly great either, it makes absolutely no difference to me lol.

    It's been a while since I read anything about 5G, is it to completely surpass 4G for general mobile comms or is it more targetted at shorter ranges? I recall hearing that it would "revolutionise home networks" but can't recall why.

    Last time I checked it was supposed to be something that could basically replace a land line internet connection AND be able to be used with mobiles...although as far as I know the UK hasn't even auctioned the spectrum or that the full standardised specs haven't even been agreed on.

    4G enabled ARM&windows devices are going to outsell these by an order of magnitude or so, but the intel 5G notebooks will make for some happy businessmen in cities
