An anonymous reader wrote to let us known about a News.com story
regarding so-called trusted computing, and its adoption by the
major PC manufacturers. From the article: "The three largest computer
makers--Dell, Hewlett-Packard and IBM--have started selling desktops
and notebooks with so-called trusted computing hardware, which allows
security-sensitive applications to lock down data to a specific PC."
Interestingly, while Microsoft is said to be behind the idea support
won't be forthcoming for trusted computing until they release Longhorn
next year, making this a hardware-vendor lead initiative.
