But what if you're neither?

George W. President sat down with Larry King on CNN tonight (transcript). During the interview, he made the following statement:

I like to tell people I would rather be — when history looks back, I’d rather be judged as solving problems and being correct, rather than being popular.

That made me think, “But what if you’re neither?”

Jobs #5 on "People who matter" list

Business 2.0 Magazine has compiled a list of the top 50 people “who matter now” in business. They placed Steve Jobs of Apple at the number 5 spot on that list. Others who made the cut include Rupert Murdoch, the Google founders, and some “Oil Despots”.

They’ve also compiled a list of the top ten people who don’t matter: people who’ve lost influence in the business community. Included in that list are Steve Ballmer, Rob Malda of Slashdot, and Linus Torvalds.

"Encryption can keep data safe on laptops"—Duh.

Many stolen laptops have made the news recently, one of which included information on thousands of veterans. That prompted the Department of Veteran Affairs to send out thousands of letters to those affected warning them to watch their credit for suspicious activity (my dad got one a few weeks ago).

An ABC News article suggests that if the laptops had used encryption technology, the problem may not be as bad as it is.

That just made me think of OS X’s FileVault. FileVault is an encryption technology that is built in OS X. It encrypts the contents of a user’s Home directory with “the latest government security standard, AES-128 encryption”.

Real security comes from knowing nobody can rifle through your files without your permission. FileVault uses the latest government security standard to safeguard your hard work. It protects all the info in your home folder from prying eyes, so your trade secrets stay secret, your holiday shopping lists are kept safe and your personal finance records remain protected.

Mac = More secure.
