Noooooo. Pentium D DRM is evil without full disclosure! I doubt this is true but anything is possible in the wacky Apple soap opera that I follow eagerly. Much more exciting than Star Wars. We'll find out in less than a hour in the next episode of As the Apple Turns!
But why would Apple do this? Because Apple wants Intel's new Pentium D chips.
Released just few days ago, the dual-core chips include a hardware copy protection scheme that prevents "unauthorized copying and distribution of copyrighted materials from the motherboard," according to PC World.
