Man Suing Microsoft over Allowing Access to Encrypted Data

I can’t shake the feeling that this fellow is just an idiot. I am more worried about the problems keeping hard drive searches as narrow as possible, much like warrants have traditionally worked with physical searches, regardless of encryption. I think it is always safest to assume that no matter how strong the encryption you use today may be, thanks to Moore’s law, it will only ever get cheaper to crack. That being the case, encryption doesn’t obviate the need from some basic morality and, of course, common sense.
