Don't try to find ways to cut costs or save money by skirting around your contractual obligations. You contract says to destroy the hard drives. You MUST destroy them. You WILL lose your contract if you do not.

If you have a Security department, take you concern to them or your Contracts Manager for this contract. They will tell you the same thing...especially if it's a classified program.

From the article:

"DRM is a piece of software, not hardware."

It seems to me that very few things can truly be defined as "hardware" these days. Even our hardware has software or firmware embedded in it.

I think Intel saw the $$$s and wet themselves with the joy of renewed opportunity and threw the consumer out with the bath water. Or just sold their soul to the devil.

I think you have it backwards. Winning elections is all about making more and more money while in office and when returning to "civilian" life as a highly paid consultant, VP or board of director. The process by which this is accomplished is what we're seeing in the media (fear mongoring, reduction in liberties, etc).

What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite. -- Bertrand Russell, "Skeptical Essays", 1928
