And some of us couldn't give a shit.

Perhaps not, but fixing all this will cost a lot of money, and that's passed on to the customer in one form or other.

One way or other, you will be helping pay for that, even if you don't use, own or care about computers.

Then again, if your bank goes down the shitter because someone has launched a really juicy attack based on these quite significant hardware flaws, I suspect you will start giving a shit then. At the very least making alternative banking arrangements will give you a belly ache of a day.
