Judging by how the police actually operate, a hard drive with that data will be put in a box and put into storage with a large collection of other such boxes, probably never to be seen again.
It's really stupid to think in numbers per-person when the problem is an absolute quantity emitted into the atmosphere.
I mean, just look at the data
You emit 1.19% of the total CO2 emitted by all countries. What are larger cuts on your part really going to do?
Australia's numbers are high because you don't have tens of millions of people living in dirt huts. Really want to do that? And the laws repealed were changing the number from what, 17 to 16.75...
Please make it moddable. I want a chainsaw on my wheelchair. Woooo!
Now why would I make WHeX WITHOUT chainsaws!
A chainsaw on every corner. The footrests? Both chainsaws.
And then of course there's the Tow Saw, which is a chainsaw tied to a rope that bounces around randomly as you roll forward.

You're sitting down. You could even sell wheels that attached to the side of office char armrests... and a gun accessory that tracked position relative to your body to match the virtual version.
Or, a Battlezone clone where you are in an open cockpit.
I don't understand why you Aussies think this even matters. Do you know how much carbon you guys produce next to China or India? A laughably small amount. You could start building factories tomorrow in the outback that did nothing but spew raw CO2 into the atmosphere and it would take you hundreds of years to catch up to China alone.
If CO2 is to really be reduced the effort falls squarely on large semi-developed countries like China or India. Even the US has already cut back as much as they can, and that without a carbon tax also... we just weren't as stupid as you to pass it to start with.
You guys are just wising up to the reality that carbon taxes are as much a ruse to make people money as anything else. Where do you think "carbon taxes" go anyway...
30 years after the original 1984 commercial the rebels have been co-opted and are now partnering with big brother.
In what way is IBM Big Brother any more? They have not been for a decade or more... if anything they are the Nerdy Brother, just hanging out on the side doing technical stuff while Microsoft gives them a wedgie every time he comes back home.
But in reality this pairing is to keep both companies strong against Google, not Microsoft.
Doesn't matter, fewer people suffering is still better than nothing. The fact you don't care about the actual number of people supposedly suffering speaks volumes about what you really care about - i.e. Hating Apple, not some guy in China just happy to have a good job.
Oddly, it's not. That's where OP is coming from. "Treasure trove" comes ultimately from Latin via French (or at least, some language fragments the Normans brought over). The "trove" means "found", so it's "found treasure". That's why in the original (pre-English) phrase, the word order is backwards: "trove" is the adjective, "treasure" is the noun, and it follows the appropriate French/Latin word order. It was pulled directly into English without reordering (common for borrowed phrases). Eventually, "trove" (which had no English meaning at all) became a synonym (a shortening) for "treasure trove".
So by etymology, "trove" was originally an adjective. However, it means nothing in English. The phrase "treasure trove" is a noun phrase all by itself that can't really be broken into parts.
Oh, sure, act against the status quo and they ship you off to Slashdot Gitmo.
* The documents are being revealed to the public now and document events from 30-40 years ago.
* These are documents that he personally worked with, rather than a cache of documents acquired for the purpose of copying and releasing them.
* There's no question, I think, that this guy was a spy and defector. He was moved from Russia to the UK with the help of UK intelligence agencies in exchange for Russian secrets. Nobody's trying to claim that he's a "whistleblower". No comment on his actions or motivations vs. Snowden's, but they are potentially substantially different.
* This guy is dead.
Up to you to decide if any of these are substantive differences and why, but there are distinct differences.
In English, "trove" has been a standalone noun for more than two hundred years. It's short for "treasure trove".
Etymologically, the "trove" in "treasure trove" comes from an adjective, but "trove" by itself isn't an English adjective. That's language for you.
Strictly speaking, you're inventing a meaning that would make sense etymologically and asserting that it's the "real" meaning of the word. It's only dictionaries and speakers of English that disagree with you.
but it's not easier to bring a tablet and a laptop than to just bring a laptop, right?
No, but it is easier to bring just a laptop than a tablet. Any USB source charges it. You can carry it more easily, and use it in more places.
since a laptop does everything a tablet does
Not actually true (touch interface far better for things like drawing) but let's pretend it is.
A laptop may be able to do everything a tablet does but if the tablet is far lighter and has better batter life guess which most people would rather have on a trip?
In a foreign country would you rather wander around looking for a WiFi cafe with a tablet tucked in your purse, or a backpack with a laptop?
This is exactly why tablets have done as well as they have, because they replace laptops for some scenarios where portability is more convenient.
i'm in BT range of my phone 99% of the day, and i think that's pretty typical.
And I'm in quick viewing range of my phone 99% of my day, which is also typical. They are the same thing...
You are joking, but if you really thought that was a problem then you would be cheering for the workers to be out of jobs you consider unhealthy for them.
So the fact you are not cheering, why is that again?
the tablet allows them to
Yes, because it's a lot easier to bring a tablet with you than a laptop. So you may well have a tablet around when there is no laptop to open.
The same is not true of any modern smart watch, which by design only really does much when a smart-phone is in your pocket.
Because you are used to the area, you do not think about driving as much near home - instead thinking about what you will do where you are going or when you get home, when you are close. It's easy to grow inattentive and miss a change that leads to an accident.
Picking someone up and dropping someone off has none of the risks of familiarity since each situation is different.
