One’s Closed Door… Another’s New Opportunity?

With all of the recent events dealing with handheld security flaws and open information, new ideas and devices have been coming to the frontlines of mainstream tech and on the verge of gaining a possible foothold.  For instance with all of the dealings with Apple and now finding that all their errors have yet to be resolved, http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/apple-security-flaw-what-you-need-to-know-1.2549246, new ideas are being looked at.  Maybe some are not even that new, just getting a new limelight to shine in.  For instance an “Anto-NSA” device that has been marketed http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/anti-nsa-blackphone-commendable-but-will-consumers-buy-it-1.2544562is now getting some light due to not only Apple’s flaws as of late, but the new ever pressing issue for some of full security with their information even from the government.

To me this is just the first stepping stone in what is to come in the future, some of which is exciting, other bits is just terrifying.  Blackberry has long been on the “secure” path with its devices and with QNX it has even taken another stride, but is it enough for some? What is your take?  Just a fad or here to stay? Do we as users NEED more, or is it an knee jerk reaction due to lack luster performance from the other side of the fence?  Would you contemplate buying an “Anti-NSA” device or continue on?  Blackberry has long been on the “secure” path with its devices and with QNX it has even taken another stride, but is it enough for some or should they look into diving even deeper into the secure market?
