Submission + - Stealing Your Vacation: Memories of a media card

twistedmoney99 writes: Anyone who has upgraded their digital camera probably has a few older incompatible media cards lying around — so why not post them on Ebay? Well if you do, be sure to properly wipe them because the digital voyeurs are watching. Seth Fogie at purchased a bunch of used cards from Ebay and found recoverable data on most of them.
