Intel CEO Paul Otellini addresses a capacity crowd during his keynote at the IDF show, saying that Intel's architecture will be the foundation of the future of computing.
Google and Intel
Intel is partnering with Google in the mobile computing space, with Google optimizing future versions of Android for Intel's Atom platform. Andy Rubin, senior vice president of mobile for Google, left, joined Otellini on stage.

Pair and Share
Intel demonstrated an upcoming application called Pair and Share, which enables two devices to create a secure connection, letting users safely transfer such items as photos and videos. The application should appear in devices from the likes of Lenovo, Acer and Toshiba later this year.
In a demonstration of Intel's focus on energy efficiency, Otellini showed off a prototype Intel chip that can be powered by light.
Journalists crowd around the prototype chip that could allow a computer to power up on a solar cell the size of a postage stamp.
