Seems intel quietly implemented the stupid copyright protection into their shipping i945 chipsets. Trying to take away our right to privacy. They wont see a dime of mine.

Do you really blame them for making this move? One of the reasons that prices are where they are"high" is because of the lost revenue. Same thing goes for insurance. All these lawsuits cost the corps money. This gets passed through to the consumer in the form of higher premiums.

Lawsuits, you want some lawsuits, just Wait. Intel may crash and burn just because of a combination of resistance to this new technology and the law suites that are bound to occur as a result of it's implementation.

I have a Intel system but if AMD resists this new type of window to the hackers of the world then they will get my business when I buy my next CPU.

<b> "active management technology"</b>
"It's a dual use technology. It's got uses and misuses. Intel has to answer what guarantees it is prepared to give that home users are safe from hackers. Not maybes, guarantees".

I don't believe this will give guarantees.

How long after it's release will that mobo be H@xxOrD? My guess is approximately 1 week.

Agree, Intel can't possibly guarantee against hacks using this new technology. At best all they can do is <b>TRY</b> to assure the consumer that it's safe.
The sad thing is, if it's sold by Dell,HP, and the others then the unknowing Office Depot customer will buy it and think they are getting something really special.

Well, those customers are generally considered special, tech wise :)

Hippie is a good thing. You seem to use it as derogotory. I would rather be a hippy than a dickhead!
What has a hippie done to you? Or do you just not tolerate different lifestyles, and philosophies. I suppose there are some bad ones in the bunch, but generally it is a peacefull live and let live attitude.

But it's like so easy to pirate and trust me the FBI ain't gonna knock up to your door if you do
You can only be comfortable thinking this if dont live here or you dont really understand how the Gov operates. I could write a book on this subject.

It is easy to see the benifits of having Big Brother watching you, but much harder to see the negatives.
Times have changed, and there is no going back...
