A state legislator in Arizona is planning to introduce a bill to ban the sale or manufacture of Intel?s Pentium II chips in the state.
According to US reports, Steve May, who will introduce the bill next week, is reacting to complaints from certain groups that new verification technology included in the chips could violate privacy.
The bill would also include a ban on government and state agencies buying computers that are enabled with the technology.
Atlhough Intel claims the enhancements improve ecommerce security and do not compromise users? privacy, yesterday it agreed to switch the utility in the chips to default off and not on as was previously planned, in response to the groups? complaints.
