    Sony used "properly good encryption techniques", but human nature being qhat it is, for most of the life span of the PS3, the password was weak. As an example of using the system partition, Apple currently create these partitions, but does not use them except for updates. Case in point, my...

    Intel's TPM platform, whatever name they are calling it now. Yes, but as I stated, there will be a need to update that list, simply from the different OS versions of Windows, not to mention they may need to change it across the board in case hackers get ahold on the code, either a hack or the...

    UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 8 with

    Secure boot does not prevent booting other OSes. It prevents booting Unknown, unsigned, or infected OSes. It is up to the manufacturer to provide a switch to allow any OS to boot.

    Really? The UEFI spec calls for fat32 partitions being readable, not ntfs. When formated as ntfs, the usb stick would not be detected by the Mac UEFI. I did not use rEFIt, as I have been having issues with lion. (refit does not solve all the problems, I usually get an error when using it, at...
