These technologies may be contained within the operating system, program software, or in the actual hardware of a device.

    Yup. But what is real scary is that Microsoft, Intel and AMD among others, are in the works of building such a thing. Microsoft with their "features" in LongHorn which requires Palladium. And AMD/Intel building Palladium into their chips. My over-view does no justice to what this all means, so please read these Links:

    http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/users/rja14/tcpa-faq.html - FAQ on what this means

    http://www.msnbc.com/news/770511.asp?cp1=1 - MSNBC look at Palladium

    http://newsforge.com/newsforge/02/06...47.shtml?tid=9 - One more article on it.

    IIRC; this won't happen for awhile, and maybe, just maybe, enough ppl will voice their expression of distaste for it, that these companies will drop it. Something like the Serial numbers, for the PIII.
