MintChip emulates the positives of cash — payments are anonymous and don’t require a bank — but work electronically.
RTFM'ed that for you.
The laptops were not networked and were not connected to the Elections Ontario network, therefore, two USB drives were to be used for the purpose of transferring information amongst the laptops in the facility.

Great. You can take the night shift then.
I know Byron, in a professional capacity. He is a very well respected member if the IT security community in Toronto. I can't say I know him well enough to rule out anything hostile on his part, but well enough to think it a very faint, nearly non-existent possibility.
This is basically the police here trying to create a story and justify the 1.3 billion dollar security effort. They seem to have put their foot in their mouth right now, as half the IT community is up an arms, asking WHAT THE HELL WERE THE COPS THINKING?
1. They're not being given any choice. Submit your prints or lose library access.
2. They're SIX YEARS OLD!
I can change my name.
For an article that's supposed to "explain" why ink is so expensive, it's rather short on details, leaving the reader with the impression of reading a whole bunch of numbers - which were all meant to impress you with drops per second, nozzle sizes, pixel sizes, etc...
I can accept that they must turn a profit, and that their prices must reflect that. What I don't see is any kind of ROI analysis. Tell me what it costs to produce and market your ink and break it down per cartridge or by mL. Then, and only then, will I believe you. Until then, this is just another excuse - entirely subjective and lacking any real objective analysis.
How fast do they wear out?
I've only been using SSD solutions for about a year now, so there's not much of a dataset yet. But I'd fathom a guess of about 3 times faster than mechanical hard drives currently - worth it, I think, for 100x the read speed. Last year when I looked at the research, the numbers all said 10 times faster. It's definitely improving.
Not at all, I have no idea if one is any more or less secure than the other. It was merely an example of the ignorance of risk.
