A very interesting read:

http://www.infowars.com/remote-kill-switch-added-to-intels-newest-processor

Intel wants to include a 'remote kill switch' with the up and coming Sandy Bridge CPU's.

If this is the case then I might be looking at AMD more closely. 😕

Then you didn't read it.

it works off of a 3G network. Easily hackable.

This is similar to when they tried to put a software traceble serial number on the CPU's years ago, it didnt go far.
That will stop me from going Sandy Bridge for sure. 😡

Honestly, I think the feedback will be so negative that Intel will eventually abandon it.
