[News] When Software and Hardware Manufacturers Hijack Your Hardware

Whose hardware is it anyway?

,----[ Snippet ]
| If I purchase hardware, it is my hardware and is no longer owned by the 
| manufacturer. If my hardware checks a cryptographic signature on a binary 
| file to verify its origins, it should be my signature signed with my key 
| since I am the owner of the hardware.
