Grownups love to throw nuggets of wisdom like “haste makes waste” or “pride comes before a fall”. But apparently, you reach a certain stage where you might feel exempt from those. And then everything falls apart. Intel may have started thinking that way and is now reaping the unsavory fruits. It did promptly roll out patches to address the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities that threaten nearly all of the computing industry but it turns out that the cure is just as bad as the disease. And now Intel is asking OEMs to hold off on applying a Spectre patch that is causing computers to randomly reboot.
