Government spurs security improvements

Well, we still don't know if (as I predicted here) Obama will be the first email friendly president. However, we do know that there is now a PDA which has been certified by the NSA for top secret voice communication. Sadly, the price tag is a hefty $3,350, which will keep it out of the hands of most private citizens (including me). Still, that's no object for Obama, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if he uses this device (or something like it) to avoid having to give up email.

Of course, the question then arises if we *really* want our President to be staring at a screen distractedly when he is being briefed on some rather important things (speaking as a true Blackberry addict here).
