Iomega Still In The Game..Sort Of

Sheesh, the last time I heard the word “Iomega” was when I was taking a class at an art school years ago. It was about a 100MB, Iomega Zip disk I think I used once and never again. No matter because Iomega is back in the game, albeit not for the best reason.

The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for anyone who can find a Iomega portable hard drive that went missing from the Birmingham Veterans Administration Medical Center. Records of over a half-million people were on the drive and are probably compromised by now. Lovely to hear about you Iomega, but I must be on my way now.
