USB Lock Keeping The Honest People Honest

Engadget reported on the new USB luck from Thanko.  The not-so-clever device uses a 3 wheel number combination lock which attaches to the USB connector of your USB drive, or anything else with a USB connector.  Although this looks like something more to keep the honest people honest as disassembling the lock itself doesn’t look to be terribly difficult.

The funny part is, if the data is that important to keep safe, wouldn’t wouldn’t you spend a few minutes learning about encryption?  I mean with the most powerful encryption software by TrueCrypt available for free, why not.  Kicks the a$$ of this “hardware” solution.
