Intel is shrinking PCs to thumb-sized "compute sticks" that will be out next year.

The stick will plug into the back of a smart TV or monitor "and bring intelligence to that," said Kirk Skaugen, senior vice president and general manager of the PC Client Group at Intel, during the Intel investor conference in Santa Clara, California, which was webcast.

A device the size of a USB stick was shown on stage, but its capabilities were not demonstrated. Skaugen said the devices will be an extension to laptops and mini-desktops, which have Core desktop processors in small PCs that can be handheld.

I'm not sure I want all my things to be "intelligent".

Sounds like a recipe for privacy failures.
