No encryption is 100%
Without brute force and millions, if not billions of years, how does one break into 256 bit AES? It may not be 100% (in theory) but in practice it is.
...and foreign governments have the technology to break through it.
Any evidence to support your claim that foreign governments have the technology to break through any encryption? Thought not.
IIRC certain public sector organisations (the NHS, for example) are obliged to self-report. Telecoms providers are also obliged to self-report. Private sector organisations aren't, in most cases, under anyh obligation at all.
I'd guess that, in reality, the prevalence of data losses/breaches in the private sector, is no less than in the public sector. It's just kept quiet more often.
Given the evidence it's pretty much inconceivable that the guy who is currently in possession of the laptop isn't also the thief. I think publishing his photo online is absolutely fair enough - I'd probably do the same thing.
I also hope the thieving little shit gets what's coming to him.
You seen 10.8? The default setting is only install/allow to run Apple approved app-store software. Piece of cake to switch it back to full-open, run what-you-like-mode and yes I know it's not full vendor lock-in as we understand it, but the seeds have sown...
The default setting is not to allow running of code from untrusted sources. This isn't lock-in, it's plain common sense.

When droid has the largest market share, surely writing for droid first would make more sense?
Not that most human beings have any."
So in answer to El Reg's question as to why it has to be an app you respond by arguing that it should be a 'droid app rather than an iOS app? Excellent logic sir!
Leaving out apostrophes all of the time makes the writer appear either lazy or ignorant - either the writer doesn't know how to use them or simply can't be bothered. Feel free to appear that way if you wish; I choose not to... In that sense I suppose I am trying to appear superior.
Indeed it does evolve. We just haven't reached the point where not using apostrophes is seen as acceptable by most people with a reasonable grasp of English... regardless of whether some "language experts" are debating it.
Incorrect use of apostrophes can fundamentally change the meaning of a sentence. I don't see this as being anally retentive.

"According to a report we got back from the ISP , mummy and daddy were most surprised to get cut off by the ISP and most unhappy as to why."
I don't believe for a second that his ISP, even if they were also your ISP, reported back to you that they had been cut off. I find it even more difficult to believe that they told you what the parents' reaction was (or even if there were parents).
