Cheshire County Council has adopted a scheme whereby if memory is stolen, it can be tracked by the police. But since memory is now so cheap, the council could be paying more than it is worth to protect it.
The council took on board Hypertec's Retrieve system, which will cost ratepayers in Cheshire #5 per memory chip more than the chips are worth. Memory prices have fallen steadily over the past two years, so that it is hardly worth thieves stealing it, said John Byrne, joint MD of memory distributor Vanguard UK.
