Think you're in full control of your computer?
Intel has just quietly added one of the necessary components of Microsoft's (and the TCG/TCPA's)
, Palladium, to the PC platform. Some say this is a move against
rampant Chinese software piracy
others think it's a power grab by the content producers.
Left unchecked, content and software producers will
have the final say in how you use your computer, fair use

Its the end of Online anonimity as we know it.
Intel announces that its next generation of CPUs will have Digital Rights Management hardwired onboard the chip. See also Microsoft's Palladium, an OS-level identity and rights management scheme.
(is this Wintel's idea of how to jump start anemic computer sales?)

Microsoft unleashes Palladium, an intrusive doozy
of a feature involving specially secure AMD/Intel computer chips and cryptology provided by Microsoft. Newsweek's head-bobbing Steven Levy, the first to get the story, remains taciturn
, failing to call into question Microsoft's security sins of the past
. Geeks run scared
while digital rights and GPL concerns
are wholly ignored by the mainstream media. Is this yet another example of a malcontent media that will never possess the balls to actually question a new feature put out by Microsoft? Even Wired
can't seem to read between the lines of a technology that "stemmed from early work by engineers to deliver digital movies that couldn't be pirated."
