Re: Encrypted drives
There needs to be a proper standard (ISO etc) that defines removable drive encryption.
Make it modular and extendible, i.e. ability to add/update/depreciate algorithms etc.
Add that to the OS, Win/OSX/Linux/iOS/Android etc. Probably as a 3rd party install initially, then as a core OS component later.
Then you'd be able to plug the drive into any machine, and as long as you have the correct credentials/key, you can access the drive.
Perhaps have a read-only option as well i.e. one key/credentials gives full read/write access, another key/credentials gives only read access.
