Do we all really believe this laptop ban will last? I sure don't.

I think there are two issues in this thread -- this must refer to the air travel bans. I don't know, but I'll bet it not only persists, it will get worse.

The other issue has to do with the trend to thoughtlessly carry valuable data (which in many cases belongs to somebody who didn't get a say-so in its care) in laptops which are not protected.

Somehow somebody is going to do something draconian to get that under control.

Some other form of executive dick-waving is going to have to be developed that does not put so much at risk.
