If you think about how someone would make money from this stunt, consider whether the TruCrypt developers are now working with a vendor that makes a product with similar functionality to TruCrypt (just to be clear : I'm not saying anything bad about any such company or their products, in fact I found one with a few minutes reading on Wikipedia that looks like a plausible alternative to TC for many people, which made me think -- I bet their sales will go through the roof now, then go on to wonder if there is a causal link...).
The cited page is a copy/paste of Linda Cureton's blog post. Lame and uncool to copy someone's article whole without a link, don't you think, even if they are paid with taxpayer $$? Here's the original article : http://blogs.nasa.gov/cm/blog/NASA-CIO-Blog/posts/post_1329017818806.html
I heard that Friendster also managed to get a patent on social networking.
Then users could sync all their data (calendar, email push, tasks to phones that have that) as well as contacts.
You can get an Exchange, or Exchange compatible service for less than $90/yr, and use that for remote wipe. For example NuevaSync is $25/yr.
Nice, so now thousands of developers will have to buy an Apple machine. That sales spike should give the stock a nice boost...
