Is HDD disk encryption "really" secure any more

Article 1

Article 2

BT snoozing

I was looking for a quote from BT (UK communications service provider) today and filled out the appropriate WEB form.  About 15seconds later (impressive !!) I got an automated mail to say my enquiry would be dealt with, the reference number made me laugh … BT snoozing or was my enquiry just boring ??    🙂

Dear __ ____ _________

Thank you for your quote request. We can confirm it has been forwarded to the BT team with Reference Number ZZZZZZZ. You will receive a reply shortly. Please retain the reference number for future use.

Best wishes,

The Google Social Graph API

From the site blurb:  “With so many websites to join, users must decide where to invest significant time in adding their same connections over and over. For developers, this means it is difficult to build successful web applications that hinge upon a critical mass of users for content and interaction. With the Social Graph API, developers can now utilize public connections their users have already created in other web services. It makes information about public connections between people easily available and useful.”  Watch the video too – more info here
