When You Need File Security, Turn to crypTo

When we last left Agent Will Verduzco, he was fleeing from his pursuers with his stolen, prototype Samsung Galaxy SIII. Having delivered his precious cargo to the extraction point, Agent Verduzco is now on a new assignment: infiltrating the notorious Google I/O conference.

He heads towards the secret backroom, keeping an eye out for any undercover Google patrols. Upon reaching the secure door, he takes out his HTC One X, and plugs the micro USB cable into the hidden maintenance slot on the control box. He downloads the files from the box and begins running the crypTo decryption application to decipher the files, using the password given to him by the lethal scientist Adam Outler.

He enters the password into the box on the door and the mechanized portal swishes open, revealing his prize: the elusive Nexus 7 tablet. Will grabs the device and turns to leave, when he hears a female voice yell, “Stop right there.” Agent Verduzco spins around ready to turn on his masculine charm when-
