It will be interesting to see how Apple implements Secure Boot on their hardware. Historically their firmwares are not user configurable at all. I will be supremely shocked if they allow user or 3rd party installable keys, rather than only Apple and Microsoft keys, let alone the ability for the user to disable Secure Boot.

iOS devices presently use a form of secure boot. There's every reason to believe Apple will eventually do this on their Mac OS devices.

Is UEFI Secure Boot really the only way to prevent the problem it attempts to solve, and if so, what about the plethora of BIOS hardware in the world today, still even shipping as new systems? They're all unacceptably exposed? Really?
