Internet of Things Solutions Group answers directly to Intel's CEO

Intel has announced that it has set up a new business division with the goal of being at the forefront of the next generation of internet-connected devices. Intel’s latest push is to get just about everything you can think of connected to the internet from air-conditioning systems to bathroom scales and appliances.

The new business division, which is headed by Doug Davis, is called the Internet of Things Solutions Group and will report to CEO Brian Krzanich. The Internet of Things Solutions Group will operate within Intel’s Wind River subsidiary, which sells software aimed at commercial and industrial devices.

"Krzanich is saying, 'I want a higher level of focus on this to help us grow it and put the level of attention on it that it deserves," Davis remarked. "We're pulling together a couple of pieces that are already doing well and we want to accelerate those efforts."

Krzanich previously announced that Intel would be working on a new line of small low-power microchips for wearable devices such as smartwatches and activity tracking bracelets. Intel is also seeking to develop a chip can be ingested by humans for biomedical uses.

This is just BS to build up hype for the overpriced, underpowered, and totally useless quark chip.
Ignore it --- it's as obviously a stupid idea as Intel's grand theory a year ago that they could somehow get internet TV going unlike every company before them that had tried.
