This is worrisome to me, as well. I've heard speculation that this is  
at least half the reason that Apple finally decided to switch to  
Intel, though - this way, they will be able to deliver Hollywood- 
approved streaming movies. The entertainment industry finally *will*  
own your PC, and Apple is going to usher in this new age of computing!
Also, as a bonus, you'll get to watch movies for (still) too much  
money. That makes up for it, right?

Honestly though, if somebody asked me what Apple was thinking when  
they switched, that answer makes the most sense to me out of any.
