Do not buy Intel's Ivy Bridge CPU!

Intel just launched new CPU line - Ivy Bridge family. There is a problem however. With shiny new CPU you will buy a back-door for your PC. Intel calls the back-door "Intel Insider". 
Intel Insider is DRM. More precisely it allows third-parties to remotely control your PC when the third-parties wish to.
This anti-feature first arose in Sandy Bridge family. It was warmly greeted by Intel customers. In fact it was so warm that many Intel customers become AMD customers.
Returning to Ivy Bridge. Intel listened to MAFFIA and not to its customers. Intel Insider is still present in those new CPUs.
So, If you want to control your PC, do not buy Ivy Bridge!
