Nice article on secure computing ...
Wired just published a nice article on secure computing:
Wired: Signs of 'Trustworthy Computing'
Ok .. Packard Bell is not known for good computers, but it's a start towards more security in the computing field ...
NEC Computing International has announced a trial program in which Packard Bell PCs will be equipped with keyboards that include secure smart-card readers.
Although it could also be a risk if the lazy user leaves his smart-card around after using it .... but that's a whole other discussion.
"To estimate the time it takes to do a task, estimate the time you think it should take, multiply by two, and change the unit of measure to the next highest unit. Thus we allocate two days for a one-hour task." -- Westheimer's Rule

It sounds like progress, but I think the best idea is "if you don't want someone to see it, don't put it on your computer."
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
