  1. It's one thing to have your personal notebook filled with family photos, music and movies come up missing. It's a different beast entirely when that missing notebook contains business information, trade secrets or the login credentials of your employer.

    Like something out of a James Bond movie. Completely pointless to most of us but awesome none the less. I wonder how the fracturing actually occurs?

    Tempting product, but I'll be willing to bet the asking price on these things will be just as impressive as their function.

    Looks like what happens when you give it too much voltage, that might be what is happening just overclock the voltage till poof.

    But then how will that work if the battery has gone flat? I'm guessing it's more complex then just increasing the voltage until poof.

    Maybe, I was just taking a guess at it from the look. I'm pretty sure it is more complex but I have no idea what exactly it does.

    Just hope it goes up in smoke after the warranty has expired or you could have a tough time claiming.

    In the US, the FBI threw a temper tantrum about unbreakable encryption announced by google and apple; it will be interesting to see if the FBI has a complete nervous breakdown about these. A brute force attempt at breaking the encryption on the "unbreakable encryption" devices with the FBI's computing power certainly has a minimal chance of succeeding, but nothing will "crack" this means of protection.
