    Lenovo-gate hehe..

    I always love how they put the FUD of you will get trojans and viruses and other malware if you download from unauthorized sources.

    They were like one of our systems were stolen.... I can see it now. Guard: Uhh hey where are you going with that system Worker: Uhh I need to take this home for testing purposes. Guard: Oh ok, just make sure you bring it back tomorrow.

    Heh - with the tools they won't even need to 'lend' the preinstalled systems home :) They've could extract the key within seconds with the software on a pendrive ;)

    I am sure that M$ uses the same techniques to call "home" in stealth mode and piggy back on legit traffic.

    I think this can work in many companies in all countries around the World. Not only in China. ;)
