Newspaper article:
Computer encryption security dissolved by a can of
air.

This may have some far-reaching repercussions.

And so simple really.  THat is scary.
Peace will not be found at a MidEast table. Peace began at a MidEast STABLE, but everyone seems to deny it.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
Believing in  evolution is like expecting a tornado to go through a junkyard and create a Mercedes Benz on its way out!
If you don\'t stand behind our US troops, then please feel free to stand in front of them. Yea, that\'s what I thought..........

This is actually pretty cool (no pun intended).

However, don\'t be alarmed, you require physical access to the machine to retrieve the encrypted data.

Does seem like it might be a tad bit easier to freeze the chip if you can, well, actually be there to freeze it, huh? :)
