Found while searching for something else.

From the top of the page (The link is now Google's Cache as the original link has been modified to say you are looking at gay porno- if you have Java tunrned on):
"Hey, my name is Matt Blanc, I work in a computer store, and I have seen some heatshrink-wrapped packages in the notebooks we repair... But it's not in all of them, it only seems like they are in the newest models from Dell, HP, and Gateway. I don't know about other brands, as I have either never seen heatshrink-wrapped packages in them, or I haven't worked on one of that brand."
And the device mentioned:
"About a month ago, I opened up my (then) almost brand new Dell 600m laptop, to replace a broken PCMCIA slot riser on the motherboard. As soon as I got the keyboard off, I noticed a small cable running from the keyboard connection underneath a piece of metal protecting the motherboard. I didn't really think too much of it and I'm not intimately familiar with laptop hardware configurations and so I assumed that it served some purpose and that it was best not to mess with it. I continued to disassemble the laptop, and after popping off the metal panels protecting the motherboard, I noticed that the mystery wire had a large bulge covered in heat-shrink tubing. I continued with the task at hand."
Oh, and do not believe everything you read, particularly when it is from someone named Matt Blanc and the website is hosted by GNAUK- have fun...
