re all,                                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                   
Intel Corp.  is now embedding digital rights management within in its
latest dual-core processor Pentium D and accompanying 945 chipset.
Officially launched worldwide on the May 26, the new offerings come DRM
- - enabled and will, at least in theory, allow copyright holders to
prevent unauthorized copying and distribution of copyrighted materials.

which let me add means the possibility to block the computer from
executing "non signed" applications, like the block of Xbox that
prevents operating systems from running on it without a chipmod.. this
is going to prevent non-authorized operating systems from running on a
personal computer. and - let's say - who authorizes them? 

now look what i've found out:
http://www.inminds.co.uk/boycott-intel.html Intel has also established
facilities in Iraq, at Al-Faluja and Al-Manshiya..

hey ppl, i say let's boycott Intel, i shout: INTEL OUTSIDE!

ciao
