Mac OS X for Intel to feature DRM

Posted on Monday, August 01 2005 @ 17:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
I read at Slashdot that the new Mac OS X kernel for Intel that includes the Developer Kit DVD uses TCPA/TPM DRM.

More specifically, it includes "a TCPA/Palladium implementation that uses a Infineon 1.1 chip which will prevent certain parts of the OS from working unless authorized."
