Wow, what a lovely early Christmas present for Australians: A crypto-busting super-snoop law passes just in time
Re: Work requires regular password changes
I used to work somewhere as a non-sysadmin that required regular password resets, retained 12 previous passwords but had no minimum password age. I just used to sit there and reset my password 13 times to get back to the one (very complex) one I had committed to memory.
I say this to perhaps reinforce that having a policy is one thing, having an effective policy is harder. Sounds like Citrix is at least trying to do good things.
Re: Another design approach:
I made one of those in my first car (a Citroen GSA estate if you want to know). I screwed the lid of an ice cream tub to the side of the centre console in the passenger footwell, snapped the tub into place, made a rubbish sized hole in the top et voila, my own bin. Tended to be full of fag packets and crisp bags.

Should a robo-car run over a kid or a grandad? Healthy or ill person? Let's get millions of folks to decide for AI...
I can't help thinking that the idea of a car that's programmed to possibly sacrifice its driver in certain circumstances could be abused. Say James Bond is driving along and a group of 10 henchman deliberately jump out in front of him so that James ends up wrapped around a lamp post.
I am glad brighter brains than mine are working on this.

Re: Going back to Thinkpad
I suspect you may not be the target market then. The folks I've seen who use these as mobile devices (seen a fair few that never actually leave their desk) have a wireless mouse and expect/demand Wi-Fi everywhere. There's no need for them to lug USB hubs or ethernet adaptors. They're not the kind of people who would know what a VM is, let alone want to run some on a tablet.
