d.net would never get coverage like that, most people dont even have a
clue what encryption is and wouldnt care unless they are giving there
credit card number.  The thing is if you dont have a clue about
computers its very hard to understand what d.net is doing, so anyone
who writes article for newspapers besides highly technical ones wont
care.
