They still think unencrypted communication is acceptable!!!  Yes, unencrypted communications and encrypted communications will be intercepted at exactly the same rate.  However, once intercepted, unencrypted emails can be read 100% of the time and encrypted emails 0% of the time.  Do you really want to tell your clients, “Your case/data/whatever is not important enough to protect?”

Wal-Mart Just Created a Designer Cantaloupe
Not even Wal-Mart likes the cantaloupes it sells in winter.
“They’re engineered to make a 3,000-mile trip, so they look good but taste like a piece of wood,’’ said Shawn Baldwin, Wal-Mart Stores Inc.’s senior vice president for produce and global food sourcing.
   Wal-Mart considered more than 100 varieties of seeds and tested 20.  Wal-Mart employees spent six months grading the cantaloupes on attributes like flavor, texture and aroma.
   The winner was dubbed the Sweet Spark, after the yellow sunburst in Wal-Mart’s logo.  The designer cantaloupes are available in 200 U.S. stores with a full roll-out planned for fall.  Sweet Spark is not genetically modified.
   Up next: tomatoes.  Wal-Mart’s Baldwin said he wants to replicate the blend of sweetness and acidity in the San Marzano variety of Naples, Italy.
