Michael Alan Crooker, currently in jail in Connecticut, says security features advertised by Microsoft and its business partners should have kept federal agents from accessing the files on his PC. In court papers filed this week in Massachusetts Superior Court, Crooker says he "suffered great embarrassment" as a result of Microsoft's failure to keep the FBI's prying eyes off his computer.

He is suing the software maker for $200,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.

lol, wtf is this crap.

1. Buy computer
2. Commit crimes
3. ????
4. PROFIT!

Oh yay, this is definitely a sign to watch out. BEWARE THE INTERWEBZ. Well, more so beware saving on the hard drive. That's what flash drives are for: to hide ???? and other stuff.

roflrofl compaq is lame D: they should have self-encrypting hard drives, now THAT would be better. all that drivelock thing does is lock it up from booting :P.

for the security geeks:

TrueCrypt - http://truecrypt.org - For encrypting your hard drive :3 its awesome, and repels teh party van.

alternatives:
FreeOTFE - http://www.freeotfe.org/ - More detailed options and stuff, but not as quick and bland interface. Good too though.

Eraser - http://www.heidi.ie/eraser/ - Sadly, has been taken over by sum lame company, but still the best at erasing your data good :3

KeePass - http://keepass.info/ - Password Safe, for storing your passwords securely and also making good passwords. no use da same one like 5 times.

LockNote - http://locknote.steganos.com/ - Program for making something of a self-encrypting text file. Pretty awesome, and quick.

7zip - http://7zip.org/ - Unzip .rar files, and lock em into .7z files. Free, unlike WinRAR (which is also pretty good, but i dont like nag windows and cracks)

Restoration - http://www3.telus.ne...ESTORATION.html - one of those strange home brewed utilities, it shows you which files can be easily restored. dont trust the recycle bin! also useful for un-deleting those things you accedently delete. no guarentee itll come back in one piece though.
