    Maybe it's just me but, how to attract the attention of the NSA - say your product is NSA proof.

    headlines 6 months from now: "NSA uses D-Central to spy on everyone. Also bypasses high end security with finger print scans from iPhone 5" :worried:

    It's a McAfee product, so it will probably be pretty effective. It just makes the computer so damn slow you won't use it anymore... NSA proof.

    Would you trust a man to encrypt your data and hide you from the NSA if he can't even hide himself with his millions of dollars from Guatemalan Police?

    Anything that has McAfee on it and is found on my computer is obliterated immediately and sent into the void in a squillion pieces

    My all-time favourite interview quote ever is on that subject, when McAfee was asked in 2012 - long after he'd sold his stake in the company - whether he used McAfee anti-virus.
