This post at Engadget caught my eye: it’s about the HotPlug power station, which enables officers of the law to seize and move computers without shutting them down. Sneaky stuff: check the post for details and a video.

This is a totally legit attack, and a good reason to start using crypted loopback filesystems that unmount at the drop of a hat.
I was trying to think how to make this harder. Possibly a GPS kill switch? Or you could have a different device hidden in the house sending a heartbeat using data over power line or something.
