Do we know for certain that the feds haven't worked some deal with
the chip manufacturers? (I think it's only reasonable to operate on the
assumption that Microslop may well have made a deal with them. What I
want to know is whether uglier approaches will be used to violate federal
statute that might affect better operating systems.) What can they have
built into things like keyboards, motherboard chip sets, even DIMMs and
other memory cards, that might escape notice indefinitely? Are there
other potential methods?

They can build networked computing devices into wires. Imagine Ethernet, USB
 and keyboard cables all capable of phoning home. They could sell them at Best Buy.
