As you may have read on UTB Blogs and elsewhere, BlackBerry has announced the release of super secure communication.
As you would have guessed by now….this makes me stop to think. Not because I feel I don’t need it, but because it is becoming more and more apparent that this is something we can’t live without.
What happened to integrity, trust, pride? We constantly have somebody looking over our shoulder waiting for an opportunity to take what we have worked for. This isn’t just the “bad” guys like hackers and criminals, but everyone else trying to make a quick buck at your expense. Maybe a cereal company trying to find out what you had for breakfast so they can sell you their product – essentially manipulating your choices based on what they know about you. It used to be bothersome having religious fanatics on my doorstep on Saturday morning – or random phone calls doing surveys at dinnertime. We now have people attempting to monitor our every move (just ask somebody using an iPhone or Android device).
This invasion into our privacy is getting progressively worse and it would seem we are going to have to rely more and more on our methods of communicating to protect us. THIS IS WHY I USE A BLACKBERRY!
