Apparently one way to really piss off the FBI is to sell hard drives with the label "secret" on them. They've been investigating the loss of some disks with classified information on them from the nearby Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, and weren't too amused when the owner of the Black Hole Surplus Store and Museum, which sells surplus from the lab, decided to capitalize on the controversy by slapping some stickers on some old hard drives, and confiscated them last week because they might be a security risk.
