Amazingly, this question is the #7 Google result for "android gmail tls", and I only asked the question 9 minutes ago. Stack Exchange has crazy SEO!

comment How does changing your password every 90 days increase security?
+1 for "The attacker might have had access to another password database in which the user used the same password". This is a very real danger. If I can hack an insecure site and discover your password there, then I can access any other systems where you used the same password. Jeff Atwood has even had this happen to him before: codinghorror.com/blog/2009/05/… . Forcing password changes may lower the chances of this happening.

comment Online backup : how could encryption and de-duplication be compatible?
If the technology functioned as you described, would that mean that if your hard drive crashed you wouldn't be able to recover your files from the cloud, as the originals (and probably the keys too) would have been lost to you? If this is the case it would make the service useless as backup, correct?

comment Server side data de-duplication + client-side encryption with private key. Possible with “convergent encryption”?
@this.josh I'm constantly amazed to find out we have StackExchange sites I've never heard of before! :-)
