Intel has reportedly revealed details about its new family of laptop and desktop processors, code-named "Sandy Bridge." The processors, which will be demoed at the CES 2011 show in Las Vegas later this week, offer better energy performance, improved 3D and graphics performance, and can overclock when needed without overheating, according to press reports. Intel will reportedly build a hardware security layer into the processors to prevent people from copying streaming videos.
So let me get this straight. Intel thinks it's going to win over customers or keep them, let alone beat their competition, by alienating the very people giving them $$? Good job on that one.
I don't condone illegal copying of any sort, but it's been proven time and time again. If people want something bad enough, they can get it, regardless of the technology. This doesn't hurt pirates and hackers. It only hurts the consumer. I can't tell you how many times I have been screwed by crappy DRM on stuff I've bought. No wonder people pirate the mess.
