You might have heard about TPM, a chip+technology that’s meant to enforce “the law” — or whatever a software company wants — on your machine. For example, it could be used to tie data to a specific machine, ideal for anti-consumer DRM. Well, it seems that TPM doesn’t exist (yay!) on the new MacBook Pros: read Trusted Computing for Mac OS X. Cory Doctorow left the Mac partly because of Apple’s silence over TPM; it’d be great to see it gone for good.
