  Britain : Hard drives justify 90 day jail without trial
Found this, the BBC has had two items on its Today program worthy of note.

1. British police were ill-educated.

2. A senior cop says that the 90 days detention without trial it wants is because the amount of information on a hard drive is more than huge piles of paper.

Because of that, the cops need to lock people away for 90 days as they need to inspect the hard drive. As everyone moves to 400GB hard drives soon, shouldn't we instead give the cops the benefit of the doubt and let them lock up people without trial for 180 days. And in the case of network attached storage, 12 years. Glad to be in the US where we have guarenteed due process.
