Not necessarily related to the actual story, but I like this gem of a quote from the reporter – "The Google search was the latest in recently discovered evidence found in the 100 million pages of content removed from computers." What a completely useless statistic. I think she is trying to insinuate (or just repeating what someone told her without actually understanding it) that if you took the entire contents of his, e.g., 20GB HDD and were to print out every byte of data onto paper, that you would end up with 100million pages. Then men would have to work around the clock to scour the data to find this "needed in a haystack". Puhlease – any geek could have found this info within 3 minutes of confiscating the computer (ok, add 30 minutes if the data has been previously "deleted" by Windows).
