Difficulty setting up security questions and other problems encountered by users are technical issues, not volume, Schuyler said. What it comes down to is there wasnt enough time to thoroughly test the systems. This is not a glitch. A glitch is a minor problem, said Robert Laszewski, a consultant and former insurance executive. The real story is that the Obamacare computer systems simply are not working. Patsy Burkins, executive director of the Charlotte Community Services Association, which is helping to enroll consumers, said shes been trying unsuccessfully for three days to get onto the federal exchange to look at prices in the Carolinas.

He emphasized that no final decision has been made about buying public safety software, and that Walker deliberately remained uninvolved in the decision-making.

Intel to buy security software startup for $20M

(Credit: Josh Lowensohn/CNET) Intel has agreed to buy a security software startup for $20 million, boosting its capabilities outside of its core processor business. The Santa Clara, Calif., chip giant has reached a deal to acquire Sensory Networks, spokesmen from the two companies confirmed to CNET on Tuesday. Both declined to provide deal terms, but Intel said revenue contributions from the acquisition are not material to the company. The Sydney Morning Herald , which earlier reported the news, said Intel will pay about $20 million for the startup. Sensory Networks, founded in 2003, creates "pattern matching and acceleration software," which is used in firewalls and to detect spam and viruses. Related stories: Intel's 'Quark' lineup targets wearables "We're very pleased with the deal and to us it culminates almost [five] years of very hard work that started with the restructure of Sensory Networks in 2009 under Sab Gosal (our CEO), myself (as CTO) and with a very small team of employees ([three] engineers in the Sydney office)," Sensory Networks Chief Technology Officer Geoff Langdale told CNET via e-mail. "We've shown that a tiny team can yield world-class results and sell technology to Tier 1 network http://www.yoemprendomexico.com providers." Sensory Networks isn't Intel's first software acquisition, and http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ultimate-software-unveil-candidate-focused-153000501.html it's nowhere near its largest. The company in 2009 paid $884 million for Wind River Systems, a software firm that helps run cellphones and other embedded systems. And it reached a $7.68 billion deal for security software maker McAfee three years ago.
