That would definitely be a better way to modernize and they could still secure everything, perhaps even in a better way.Man, could they not come up with a way to just download the files instead of charging $30 USD to ship a USB stick? It would also only take a minutes instead of days, or even weeks if you happen not to live on the US mainland. It would just be my luck that mine would get X-Rayed into oblivion coming into Canada.
If not for the authentification process, I'd have imagined this was meant as a plug and play option for those that aren't tech-savvy. Perhaps it even started that way in a board meeting but undid itself in technical implementation.
I paid $10 in shipping; sorry Canadia.
