Okay let's imagine there is indeed a backdoor in Intel ME and it has low level access to RAM and the Ethernet controller.

1. Wouldn't whatever data is being transmitted appear on a regular packet analyzer on another device acting as bridge?

2. Let's say they know the IP address of "person of interest", how would a glowie access the backdoor remotely to enable wiretapping and microphone recording (think about the technicality of it)?

Because you do? You know nothing. The fact is remote hardware backdoors almost never work. You have to have physical access to compromise a device or have the user compromise themselves on their operating system through rootkits.

How come they don't have a cult fanbase like Apple?
76 replies and 14 images omitted. Click here to view.

Apple was made from the inception to reflect the hippie youth culture. Hence the logo and name borrowed from the Beatles. Jobs was a Beatle-crazed boomer.

Microsoft was founded to take over the corporatist world and become a requirement for every office.

Then Jobs fought to grow a company after the software market was already controlled by the Windows ecosystem. For years Apple struggled to be relevant by building "designer computers" and gadgets. Then the culture shifted in the early 2000s and people started caring more about aesthetics. That's how the iPod became a hit, when people started jogging and wanted to have a stylish MP3 player to show off.

So Apple hit it big with a small gadget first, they were irrelevant in any other space. It was this lifestyle gadgetry zeitgeist which made them big, a cultural change. They were lucky, because if culture didn't change they'd be still churning out lifestyle gadgets for a small niche market.

TLDR - Apple didn't become successful due to some groundbreaking products, they were specialised in a type of aesthetic gadget right when the culture shifted towards making cute gadgets fashionable. Literally electronics fashion company.

Microsoft had always been associated with the office environment, with something that is necessary, but not very exciting.

this
they pitched a fucking fit and said they weren't able to do anything past AM3 and 775

Took apart said appliance and found a mic. Don't know much about air purifiers, but know there's no reason for it to have a mic. Mom put these around my house like crazy, but 100% she didn't plant mics in it, she's not petty or smart enough for that. Further research on the product said that it breaks down O3 and bacteria at a molecular level, but seems literally impossible since it has no fans and nothing high tech enough to do what it says. Seems like a scam, but still really concerned about the mic since there's so many in my house now. This is the manual/product description for the chip that the mic is connected to https://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/ne555.pdf I can't understand it but maybe someone else can
