Hacker Cracker Re:Trust Me. (658 comments)

Never, unless of course you meant security for anyone except the computers owner. Then it makes plenty of sense to make the computer a remote-controlled slave terminal...
This didn't hit me as something that any sane person would want until I realized that this is how cable networks control your local cable provider. They scramble their networks at the control room and authorize cable operators remotely. If the cable operator doesn't pay their bill (or what have you) then the boxes on their end won't descramble the signal--they're controlled remotely, at the cable network's authorization center.

I can imagine Bill Gates walking into one of these cable network installations and seeing what kind of power they have over the local cable providers and thinking to himself that this is an insanely great idea (which means he had to come up with some way of making software subscription based, 'natch)...
