LXer: Acer Tells Kid's Charity - Pay Up or Shut Up

Published at LXer:

When I began triaging the machines to get them ready for our kids, I ran across two of the Acers that had what seemed to be a bios password on them. Not a problem, either flash the bios or pull the battery for some amount of time and problem solved. Not here. Not for these. What I ran into was something that I have ranted about in the past to the point where I almost bored myself. Trusted Computing.

I'm going to make sure as many people as possible are aware of this. Well done Acer, hope you enjoy all the negative publicity coming your way!
