Four lost laptops ain’t so bad

Boeing has lost four laptops full of personal data, and it seems like they can’t be bothered with the issue.

Four laptops is like ten grand – probably below Boeing’s deductible. But the personal information on 547,362 humans – now there’s some buckaroos to an ID thief.

what is it with laptops? Or should I?

I have to pick on our educational institutions for educating our computer science grads, and then losing their data. It is simply ridiculous. Then I read that Boeing has “lost” a laptop full of employee records.

Now I am asking myself, “what is it with UC Berkeley?” They “lost” confidential staff and student data, AND it was on a laptop!
