Day 30 -- "Trusted" Computing
Submitted by mattl on Tue, 2009-01-13 11:22
Who should your computer take its orders from? Most people think their computers should obey them, not obey someone else. With a plan they call "trusted computing", large media corporations (including the movie companies and record companies), together with computer companies such as Microsoft and Intel, are planning to make your computer obey them instead of you.
We also suggest "Treacherous Computing" as a replacement for the misleading "Trusted Computing".
