Palladium: Safe or security flaw?

Wired: " What's Palladium? Depending on who you ask, it's either a catalyst to turn silicon into gold for the PC industry, or it's the stuff the black helicopters are made of.

Microsoft's recently announced R&D project, which includes chipmakers Intel and AMD as partners, aims to combine software and hardware extensions to traditional PC architecture. Palladium's goal: Move security-conscious applications out of the server room and back onto the Windows desktop, by soothing both consumer fears about privacy and corporate concerns over piracy."
