This is a recent article.
Let’s see some ID, please
The end of anonymity on the Internet?

Already over 20 million PCs worldwide are equipped with a tiny 
security chip called the Trusted Platform Module, although it is as 
yet rarely activated. But once merchants and other online services 
begin to use it, the TPM will do something never before seen on the 
Internet: provide virtually fool-proof verification that you are who 
you say you are.

The myth rises from the ashes. :o

I remember the fiasco over the Pentium ID number.  I wonder how long 
until someone designs a filter that can fake these numbers over the 
Internet?  Two or three weeks?  Look how long it took to crack the DVD 
coding on the Xbox 360?

It will last as long as Windows is secure. :)
