    Way too scary :eek:
    If this issue gets enough media coverage, I smell a recall.

    Interesting...but I seriously doubt they would implement a recall. Has there ever even been a recall on computer processors for security reasons? I think the potential security risks involved with this are way beyond the understanding of most people and would likely be dismissed by many as inapplicable to most people.

    He's right about AMD, and AMD's buyout of ATI was a match made in hell as far as providing drivers for OSS is concerned. Both have been on the hot seat for years because of this. Isn't the far-ranging power of the M$ wallet wonderful.:thumbd:
