Portable darknet

The content rights groups are getting angry, and according to their own figures they probably should be. But when the going gets tough, the tough might decide to become invisible. The very cheeky and naughty people at Jamabalaya Brands offer invisibility for $9.97. CryptoStick's 100MB of storage isn't that much, but they claim it can do a lot of weird and wonderful things, and they are working on an AES256 version. The real problems arise when we start thinking about the possibility of much larger capacity storage devices with this kind of functionality embedded. One of my highly valued readers just dubbed this concept the "CryptoPod." Sounds like a sneakernet on steroids to me.
