And you're not allowed to tell anyone the police told you to decrypt the data, if they tell you not to." The penalty is 4 years imprisonment.
"CatGenie can't run without SaniSolution, like a car can't run without petrol." is often heard. But that's a flawed analogy and an insult to most people's intellect because it's the laws of physics that prevent a car from running without petrol, but it's a flaky business model that prevents CatGenie from running without SaniSolution.
But a better car analogy would be:
"CatGenie can't run without SaniSolution, like a car can't run without Esso."

The post industry, already squeezed to the bone, is getting killed by this pointless obsession with pixel resolution.
We have electric and hybrid buses in London, but using a Flywheel (first developed as a fuel-saving measure for F1 cars) to preserve kinetic energy has made the greatest difference to efficiency for London buses.
