Apple OfB is reporting that, contrary to widely-published and discussed rumors, Apple is not including the controversial Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip in its Intel-based Macs. An anonymous registered Apple developer claims that the Apple x86 test boxes do not have DRM or TCPA components. Developers are forbidden from discussing the units by the nondisclosure agreements they've signed with Apple. so they've been unable to counter the rumors.

Don't you have an ego problem ?

Nope, just fighting fire with fire.

Perceived elitism from Mac users? Ahem, crappy beige box????

Why should I put up with being painted as a thirdworld computeruser using a frankenstein, scrapware computer? (Because that is what it comes down to, before a wise-ass spells out that nobody said that).

You irk me, I irk you. Me "boasting my computer skills in front of those lazy, ignorant, pretentious Mac users" is what get's you all riled up. (You see, I am my own manufacturer and I select and test my own exclusive machines).

When the war will finally have worn us both out, maybe we can get to a truce in which we agree to see computers from Apple, HP, Dell, Whitebox-around-the-corner as equally able platforms to do our computing on.
