I can't find an admirable element in Trusted Computing Standards. Their goal seems solely focused by Sony-Media Types for their singular benefit. I don't understand what possible benefit the hardware (or other software) groups find in TC Standards. Richard Stallman's article over on GNU ends up calling it "treacherous computing" and sometimes I think it's just Terror Computing Standards.
Start Screen locks us into WinStore-Only Apps which locks us into Per-Use Subscriber Payments and then, a refusal to follow that allows Trusted Computing components to shut down all functions.
Just for Sony (et al) to collect far more on patents and licensing fees than they've ever collected on tickets or disc's sold payments?!!
Well, MasterCard Visa don't make their kajillions off of our interest payments. They make it off of that transaction fee, that "switching" fee.
