That's great news. And I say that with a straight face because I work in the mainframe business.

But what does it have to do with a PC? Isn't this called Maximum-PC?

Thatś why I cancelled my subscription years ago, when you guys started feeding me all this crap about Mobiles, Portable music players, etc... And the worst: your infamous Christmas Gifts suggestions... nothing but marketing for products not even remotely related to PCs.

And secure, Wake up Sony and Blizz:

IBM System z is a leading platform for secure data serving and the only commercial server to achieve Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 5+ security classification, providing clients the confidence to run many different applications containing confidential data on a single mainframe. The new zEC12 builds on this with innovative security and privacy features to help protect data at rest or in flight -- a critical capability in the age of Internet banking and mobile devices.

zEC12 includes a state-of-the-art, tamper-resistant cryptographic co-processor called Crypto Express4S that provides privacy for transactions and sensitive data. Crypto Express4S includes new hardware and software developed with IBM Research to help meet the security requirements of different industries and geographies. For example, it can be configured to provide support for high quality digital signatures used with applications for Smart passports, national ID cards and online legal proceedings, replacing handwritten signatures as directed by the EU and the public sector.
