Should sensitive data be stored on laptops?

BOSTON, Massachusetts (AP) — Every month seems to bring another episode of sensitive personal information escaping into the wild because a corporate or government laptop computer is lost or stolen. A common response is a lot of hand-wringing over how the data should have been encrypted.

But some key questions usually go unanswered. Why is so much private data allowed to be on laptops to begin with?

4 Battery Tips for Your Mobile Gadgets
By Christopher Elliott

Reprinted with permission from the Microsoft Small Business Center

Mention the words “battery life.” The first gadget that comes to mind is probably the energy-consuming laptop computer — particularly if you’re on the go a lot.

If not, it should be. There never seems to be enough juice to run your portable PC, as I griped about in a previous article. Ah, but if laptop PCs were the extent of your battery blues, you might not feel so, well, powerless.

But power problems plague other mobile devices. For example, a 2003 In-Stat/MDR survey found that long battery life ranked as the most important feature to business users when selecting a wireless handset. Users of personal digital assistants (PDAs) are just as concerned about a possible energy crisis. I know because I am one and I never seem to stop worrying about running dry.

Five Ways to Prevent Your Laptop from Being Stolen
When your laptop gets stolen, you lose a lot more than your computer and the cost of the replacement; that is why it makes sense to take these simple steps to protect it.
DON’T let your computer out of your sight, even for a moment. Wi-Fi hotspots like coffee shops can be distracting and are prime hangouts for laptop thieves. Don’t leave it on a table to get a refill and don’t put it on the floor behind your chair.DON’T leave it on the seat of your car. Hide it under the seat or in the trunk or you could end up with a stolen laptop AND a broken car window.DON’T leave it in your hotel room unless you’ve secured it with a laptop cable lock ($30 to $50 at most stores). If you don’t have a laptop cable lock, take it with you or ask hotel management to lock it up.Read More
