    Hmmm, an "interesting" find

    I have given it a bit of thought and although I can see a superficial attractiveness to it, it doesn't really stand up to a rigorous logical examination?

    1. You would have to be in physical possession of your laptop at the time.
    2. You would have to be in obvious physical danger.
    3. You would have to choose between destroying the SSD or using your weapons to defend yourself and escape.
    4. From a military viewpoint, thermite or C4 is much more effective and reliable.
    5. What the hell are you doing with that sensitive data in that situation?
    6. Terrorists and drug dealers are not stupid enough to hold sensitive data like that, or would take the #4 option......particularly terrorists with a suicide bomber mentality.

    So, the only people I can see with any possible practical use for it are Pedos...............................?????

    From an industrial viewpoint I could see difficulties taking anything like that onto an aircraft?

    Right now, encryption still seems the better option.
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    Hey Ted!
    loved your manifesto although about half way threw it did fly off the table by itself.

    greetings nihil!
    im afraid your out teded here.
    Buissness data can be highly sensitive. if your compitition were to find out your future plans and projects being worked on, it could put thousands of people out of work.

    thermite would be the way to go though. C4 could throw large enough fragments to retrive data from. thermite would just leave a whole burned in the floor where the boxen used to be....by the way how have you been?

    Hi,

    From a corporate point of view, this kind of devices (In my case external drives) can turn out very usefull it's very well known that corporate spionage is a big problem or even theft that can turn into a nightmare, i personnaly have to go everywhere with my professional laptop (even on vacations to not so secure destinations) since i have to be always reachable and able to mitigate crytical situations or video conferences and i can say that somethimes it's very unconfortable i would like to store sensible/restricted/Confidential data in a device similar to this and remove it from the laptop or when i have to bring documents from my Corporation to work at home (I even have a safe just to store external drives/Pens). In the case of this device i'd like to have one in a external case self powered for the features presented in the demo without self power it's pointless, the smoke seems marketing strategy to seem like some sort of Impossible Mission gadget lol i would prefer if the process was less visible. I think that a person with some knowlege in electronics would be able to make something like this, i know i will

    My best regards,

    Your old profile is sitting around waiting to be used. Your profile is set to us a @surferboard.com email.. If it is still a valid address, you can use the "Forgot my Password" function.

    If the address is no longer valid - send me a working address via PM. (it has to be an address that you didn't use for your new account)

    OMFG That has to be the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

    Sargent: "Take this sensitive information with you to the field. Use the red button if captured".

    Gomer Pyle: "Yes Sir! Right away Sir".

    Off goes Gomer to carry out his mission, but first he stops by his house and makes a backup copy of the sensitive data.

    Or the corporate guy, or legal guy, or police chief guy, or whoever else gets their hands on that thing prior to any button being pressed.
