Who Owns You Computer?
I ran across this story on Wired.com's site. If you truely wish to own your pc, you need to check this out. Here is short excerpt:
If left to grow, these external control systems will fundamentally change your relationship with your computer. They will make your computer much less useful by letting corporations limit what you can do with it. They will make your computer much less reliable because you will no longer have control of what is running on your machine, what it does, and how the various software components interact. At the extreme, they will transform your computer into a glorified boob tube.
