Intel purchases Kno in effort to expand into interactive textbook market Intel has acquired Kno, an education startup that provides apps for interactive versions of digitized textbooks.

"The acquisition of Kno boosts Intel's global digital content library to more than 225,000 higher education and K-12 titles through existing partnerships with 75 educational publishers. Even more, the Kno platform provides administrators and teachers with the tools they need to easily assign, manage and monitor their digital learning content and assessments ... We're looking forward to combining our expertise with Kno's rich content so that together, we can help teachers create classroom environments and personalized learning experiences that lead to student success."

They might do well to fix problems with their current range of hardware. I have had nothing but problems with their USB implementation, both 2.0 and 3.0. These can't even power 2 - two - usb powered hard drives simultaneously that are drawing less then the specified 500 ma current and keep getting disconnected ! Apart from this they have major problems with drivers too. BTW AMD is no better.

They should learn a lesson from VIA, NEC and nVidia. My 8 year old VIA CN7 mini-itx board can comfortably power 5 such drives without a hiccup!
