Letters To The Editor

Population Factor

The fact that China graduates six times as many engineers as the United States does is mostly because there are almost six times more people in China of college age ("Prepare Our Children To Succeed And Lead," April 11, 2005).

Why doesn't Michael Friedenberg then ask, "What are the Chinese doing to achieve this? Can we copy their successful educational strategies?"

Protect Employee Data

I found the commentary "If Data Is Breached, Do The Right Thing" a very topical read (April 25, 2005). It has, however, left me wondering when the topic of protecting employee information will be covered in the same breath with protecting customer information.

We've seen an increase in the number of compromised workstations inside small to midsize businesses and not-for-profits that could have resulted in the exposure of employees' sensitive information. What's particularly frightening is the lack of concern on the part of the business owners and executives.

Dual-Core Pioneers

"New Era Dawns With Dual-Core Chips" makes it sound like AMD and Intel have revolutionized computing with the dual-core idea (April 25, 2005).

I'd like to give some credit: Sun Microsystems and IBM have had dual-core CPUs that businesses could buy for at least a year. Yes, these CPUs are designed more for midrange to high-end servers, but these two companies are the first in the computer industry to make multiple CPU cores on a single die.
