...and you were referring to the typo, lol.
Exactly, LOL. I just added a pair of " " to my second sentence so it's easier to understand. the "c" is in italic, but barely distinguishable.
Anyway, what is the difference between this and the Pentium 3 serial number ?
Is it the sofware (Windows Vista / 7) that is more secure nowadays than it was back in the P3 days, and keeps us more secure from privacy invasion ? Is that the difference ?
Because from a hardware point of view, I don't really understand why there isn't such a negative public reaction to this as there was when the Pentium 3 serial number was introduced - and then disabled in the Bios because of said negative reactions from the public. Can you turn this off in the BIOS too ?Edited by tpi2007 - 3/4/11 at 8:32am
