Intel Unveils MICA "My Intelligent Communication Accessory" Smart Bracelet 48

Posted by samzenpus

MojoKid writes With a few companies introducing smartwatch products at IFA in Berlin, Intel's taking a slightly different approach. The chip-maker's wearable debut in Berlin is far different than those being issued by LG, Samsung, and Motorola, focusing on fashion instead of nuts-and-bolts. It's called MICA, which is short for "My Intelligent Communication Accessory," and Intel's calling it a "feminine accessory blending seamlessly into everyday life." While it handles text messages, push alerts, and other notifications like most other smartwatches, it's also snazzed up on the design front. Details are murky in terms of operating system, etc., but make no mistake: Intel's entry into the wearables arena is a piece like no other.

    Cell phones are relatively insecure, especially the ones that never get updated. What is the security of this device like?
    Already we are carrying around cell phones with all of our personal lives on them, and yet they want us to get yet another device that will hopefully be supported with patches and updates?

    Don't really think I'll be getting one of these until a security expect reviews them.

Hold on to the root.
