A reliable source out of south Florida reports that Microsoft Corp. and the computer sales giant, Dell Computer, has agreed to the terms of an agreement with the Federal Government to include key stroke logging software in every new computer to be manufactured beginning in November 2005.

It is reported that the software records every stroke made on the keyboard and the data is sent via wireless internet (where available) to a Federal data encryption and storage facility so that a supercomputer can scan the data looking for coded messages of national security importance.

The agreement is part of the revised (and recently passed) Homeland Security Bill recently re-enacted by congress.

Michael Dell was overheard to say: "It's good for me. It's good for [Bill] Gates. Hell, it has to be good for America. And besides, no one will know it anyway... so, who really cares, huh?"

Fixed it for you.

Computers and operating systems aren't particularly mysterious. You couldn't possibly do this without a LOT of people knowing.

In addition to the fact that this would be grossly illegal, from a practical perspective, how would the feds handle raw key feed coming from 200 million computers?

I can't imagine a well educated billionaire of Michael Dell to use the word "huh?"

C:\ fdisk

Seriously, that sounds like a load to me. Even if it's true, just reformat and reinstall a (clean) OS and be done with it.

I'm not saying he's not well educated, but he did dropout of college.

he dropped out of school.

Just think how well he'd have done... if he only finished school and earned a degree.

Heh, AMI/Award BIOS chats on the net during computer boot. No, I’m not talking about a DHCP(or BootP) request or a MAC address frame. Some versions go out on the net and check for updates after boot init…

I shudder to think what your favorite three letter agency could do with the 5+ megs of storage on current MBD PROMs.

But hey, we now return you to your regularly scheduled misinformation.
