Which shouldn’t really be surprising. That’s historically how deleting a file has worked with computers. Want to get rid of all traces? Get a specialized program that will overwrite the stuff.

What bugs me about this is the Michigan State Trooper practice of cloning a phone if you’re stopped by a Trooper for any reason at all.

But why should that bother any of you? You’ll put up with TSA gate rape, so why not phone rape too?
