Laptops Now Inconvenient For Travel

A recent article about travelers laptops may be detained at border makes me think people will now take a whole new approach to data storage.

From online accounts like dot mac and remote access to shared networks to VPN and other anything else you can think of.

The article begins with "Federal agents may take a traveler's laptop or other electronic device to an off-site location for an unspecified period of time...", well that means that company information can be breached, and it's inevitable that someone gets their hands on valuable information and looks to profit from it.

So we might see a resurgence of companies like xdrive (remember them?) or similar.

All of this makes sense, but it's unfortunate to have come to this.
