+ - Atari Founder proclaims the end of gaming piracy-> 1

Submitted by
OMGZombies writes "Speaking on a conference held yesterday in New York, the Atari founder Nolan Bushnell said that a new stealth encryption chip called TPM will "absolutely stop piracy of gameplay" The chip is apparently being embedded on most of the new computer motherboards and is said to be "uncrackable by people on the internet and by giving away passwords" though it won't stop movie or music piracy, since "if you can watch it and you can hear it, you can copy it." I don't know much about this chip but what I know is that hackers are a resourceful lot and they love a challenge."

    Here's a link [] to the webcast of the conference (sorry, it was aired on thursday), though you can get a transcript if you're willing to spend 75 bucks. (just hit _transcript_ on the site.)
    and here's the link to the uWink blog [], Bushnell's latest company.
    There was a youtube video, but it was pulled off.
    Other [] sources [] to the story.
