Privacy Issues with Apple and Dave Winer’s busted MacBook HD !

Found this morning on Slashdot. A story about a guy who’s MacBook Pro laptop had a hard drive failure. He went into the Mac store, they swapped out the failed drive on warranty, and guess what, they refused to return his dead drive. He left the store without the drive and now is concerned about the sensitive data on his old disk. Well, so would I !

I checked out the link and read the blog who’s name is Dave Winer, and I was amazed that someone with his experience could find himself in a situation where his private property and a great deal of code and ongoing work projects would be hijacked by a group of store clerks carrying out the will of Apple Computers.

Dave Winer’s blog has an amazing Page Rank of 8 with 33,000 (33K) backwards links.
