Positive Trusted Computing applications explored

— 12:56 PM on March 25, 2004

Trusted Computing gets a pretty bad rap from the tin foil hat crowd, but it's not all doom and gloom. Slashdot pointed me to an article at Unlimited Freedom that highlights some interesting applications for Trusted Computing that could be pretty beneficial. The author sees Trusted Computing having a positive impact on online elections, multiplayer gaming, Internet banking, P2P networks, distributed computing, online shopping, and a number of other applications. As it turns out, Trusted Computing might not be all bad after all.
