/me wonders whether "Future technology2" adapter->"Future technology1" adapter ->Sata(3G)->IDE adapter will work
Existing technology is DRM free.
Unless every manufacturer immediately implements it ... the companies that support this form of DRM had better start diversifying ... or they are going down faster than a drunken 90yr old woman with a broken hip.
People will avoid their hardware. Sure Dell/HP/other prebuilt crap will be bundling this crap & making out like it's a great thing, but hey, aftermarket sales of DRM hardware is not gonna happen! People are gonna be PI$$ED that they can't make a backup of their valuable disks before their 2yr old chews on the damn thing!
