Whether you encrypt a PDA or hard drive or folder the common denominator to all is a password, pass phrase, fingerprint or... to initiate entry to the device and subsequent automatic decryption.
So why bother with the encryption?
Once you correctly enter the pass... then the device data opens regardless of encryption or not.
It seems the only value of encrypted data is for some James Bond level of data theft that is able to bypass the password getting to the data but the data is useless being encrypted. But again, given that assumption, encryption would be of use to maybe .1% of the computing set of users.
Am I missing something?
