Data ghosts in the machine and online

In the US I hear that AOL accidentally leaked the search history of 650,000 users (care of the Datamation IT News Blog), meanwhile a local electrical retailer sold a memory stick that someone had used to take pictures at their own sales conference. More reminders that we are leaving data tracks everywhere about our digital lives...

However, we can't say we weren't warned - we already know that old hard drives and secondhand PDA's can accidentally reveal a lot about their owners.
