Enable SpeedStep support on any capable Intel CPU

Unfortunately, when you pay for CoolBook, you're only paying for one machine. If you ever replace your MacBook, with, say, a newer MacBook, the author tells you to take a long walk off a short pier and pay up again.

I had a Mac that lasted about three months before I sold it off and replaced it, as it wasn't what you'd call "reliable". When I fired up CoolBook on the new machine, it told me I had too many machines active. When emailing the author, he let me know that I would have to pay up again. One could argue that it's so you can't run it on more than one machine at the same time, but the software phones home, he could deactivate one machine and activate another.

It's not an expensive piece of software, but man, did that turn me off. That being said, it's pretty clearly stated on the web site.
