That guy is in desperate need to get his comp back, and is talking about bs hes seen on tv. Network card won't do shit, I doubt he has a transponder, and why would those dicks at Microsoft give a fuck that hes running the same version of windows? Perhaps same key, then again 100000's of people pirate windows.
Hell, I bet that guy still doesn't work for those companies, or is a correspondent. Why? I'm not going to trust private matter worth "millions" to a guy who keeps all his information on a laptop that he uses for work, or isn't password protected.
I'd probably sue his ass too. He's a dumbass for letting it get stolen.
