And for the fun part...

Sources have indicated that Apple will employ an EDID chip on the motherboard of Intel-based Macs that Mac OS X will look for and must handshake with first in order to boot. Such an approach, similar to hardware dongles, could theoretically be defeated, although it's unknown what level of sophistication Apple will employ.

Anybody wanna wager how many minutes it'll take the hackers to work around this security protection?

Of course then they'll start suing people under the DMCA, and it'll get all messy. Sigh. I used to like this company.
