Editorial Today's confirmation that Apple is going x86 makes today a historic day in the industry. It may mean that Microsoft might see a few percent decline of their market share the next few years, but what about Linux? If Linux were to lose an equal amount of share it would alter its spread to the desktop, a spread that has been very positive so far.

Intel & DRM RUMORS
by sen on Tue 7th Jun 2005 01:12 UTC

A hungarian portal made a small interview with Markus Weingartner, the technical marketing manager of the european divison of Intel. He told them that this DRM rumor was a misconception (PC World - http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,121027,00.asp ) because of Graham Tucker (Intel, Australia).
Mr. Weingartner continued: It's about DTCP-IP (Digital Transmission Content Protection over IP). DTCP-IP is a network protocol designed for digital broadcasting.
It will allow the clients to play this special media.
DTCP-IP is supported by Hitachi, Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba as well. There were several digital media adapters supporting this technology.
The DTCP-IP technology is supported by "software ecosystem built on this platform" not by the hardware (Pentium D or the i945 chipset).
