Trusted Computing

This is a video demonstrating some of the ideas behind "Trusted Computing" from an industry and a personal standpoint.

I like the idea of trusted computing, in that I will choose what to "trust" in as much as if i decide to make a device do something it wasnt designed to do, I can "trust" it and let it operate alongside whatever else I have plugged in.

In the case of industry Trusted Computing will take this away, it will restrict innovation and limit the spread of ideas, it will affect the 2nd hand hardware market as each device could be restricted to its original purchaser.
