PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's going to be a rough month for what was once one of the most successful smartphone companies in the world. Between all the Android and iOS violence, it's easy to forget there's this Canadian company which was still growing its userbase every month. However, it's expected the company will lose subscribers for the very first time.

Security is one of the selling points of RIM Blackberries. Government agencies know a hell of a lot more about 'security' than you.

I really wish that were true, but typically governments attract:

1/ high paid consultants that don't really give a shit whether their solution works as they wont be supporting it once their job is done, and

2/ underpaid permanent staff who aren't bright enough to work in the private sector, let alone consult.

Obviously this is a huge generalisation, but I dismay at the way how IT is handled in government projects.
