PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, well, well, what have we here? Hackers have gained access to internal documents from the Indian Military (shared on the web), and in it, it is revealed that RIM, Nokia, and Apple have added backdoors to their mobile software (BlackBerry, S40 (supposedly), and iOS) which the Indian Military's intelligence service then used to spy on the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (the USCC). The backdoors were added by RIM, Nokia, and Apple in exchange for Indian market presence.

Remember Skype?

A closed-source, obfuscated app using a proprietary, obscure, closed protocol from those shady individuals, pioneers of early p2p techs?

Well, most users still think it not only does free calls, but also confidentiality, cause it has "encryption"! How do they know? Because Skype says so, they promised.

Now s/Skype/Blackberry/ :-)
