We’ve all had those absent-minded moments where we’ve forgotten something vital, right? Locking your keys inside your home is easily done, but at least it only affects you. Imagine then, if you’d misplaced or lost something a bit more, well, disruptive. For example, leaving an external drive with customer data on it on public transport could cause quite a problem.
