Submission + - Google NativeClient CPU Whitelist Maintained By Ex-Intel Director (google.com)

HuvahCraftah writes: Apparently, anti-competitive habits die hard. After leaving his Director position at Intel, Brad Chen became the gatekeeper at Google for which processors you are allowed to run NativeClient apps on.
