Oh great more paranoia from the movie business.

It'll be circumvented in two days by some linuxgeek.

:lol: Building restrictions right into the chipset?

That's fucking ridiculous. How about all of the streaming video done by the military? You know drones and such? They're going to blanket block recording streams of everything, just in case it happens to be a media stream?

:lol:

I give it 1 - 3 weeks after release that someone finds the exploit for it and kills all of their R&D. How about instead of releasing retarded garbage you actually release a new faster chip instead of 4 or 6 or 8 of the same chip in one housing? i don't need 8 3 GHz chips, give me a 10Ghz chip, or a quadcore 10GHz.

Dicks!

Insider is a very specific DRM protection scheme. Hollywood is going to kick off a service (probably integrated into the existing Netflix etc.) whereby you can stream HD movies when they're released in stores, and having one of these chips will make it either a) easier to do so or b) the only way to do so.

It's an anti-piracy thing, but I don't care much for it either.

They've been going down this road since before MS Vista was released (back when it was codenamed 'Longhorn').

There may be a way to circumvent it but the premise of building DRM into the CPU chip level isn't new and it isn't that easily overcome. That's why those with a vested interest in making sure we have to pay for every shred of media we ever consume are pressuring Intel and AMD to build it in. The ability of Linux hackers to circumvent things is negated by the media providers not supporting the OS. Just look at Netflix.

I can even see problems with this for Gaming. I am wondering what it will do to programs like FRAPS and MMORPGS/games with content from the internet...

Intel Insider will have nothing to do with games, only Intel-encrypted 1080p movie streams from their new streaming service.

Meh, still not possible to plug the analog hole, so stuff like this is just so much pissing in the wind.
