Ha! :)

I can really recommend eyeing through that book to get confirmation on
where Intel has been heading for several platform generations now, or
just for fun. (Techie advisory: Intense buzzword bingo)

Chapter 1: Cyber Security in the Mobile Age
Chapter 2: Intel's Embedded Solutions: from Management to Security
Chapter 3: Building Blocks of the Security and Management Engine
Chapter 4: The Engine: Safeguarding Itself before Safeguarding Others

(Remember to check those password lengths, ey.)

Chapter 5: Privacy at the Next Level: Intel's Enhanced Privacy Identification (EPID) Technology
Chapter 6: Boot with Integrity, or Don't Boot
Chapter 7: Trust Computing, Backed by the Intel Platform Trust Technology
Chapter 8: Unleashing Premium Entertainment with Hardware-Based Content Protection
Chapter 9: Breaking the Boundaries with Dynamically Loaded Applications

(Chapter 9 is my favorite! It describes how the ME OS can dynamically
load third-party Java code.)

Chapter 10: Intel Identity Protection Technology: the Robust, Convenient, and Cost-Effective Way to Deter Identity Theft
Chapter 11: Looking Ahead: Tomorrow's Innovations Built on Today's Foundation
