I guess it is my writing style and perspective that gets in the
way - and I certainly would be the first to apologize to anyone who has
taken offense because I seem to be making groundless accusations.
I am most impressed by what I hear about RIM and Blackberry and
very pleased to hear that they seem to have done things right and
implemented real security in their corporate version. And I stand by my
opinion that it was really rather sad that they also could not have
implemented enough if not really tight security on the BBIE product to
make it hard to nearly impossible for parties equiped with nothing but
radio gear and curiousity to dragnet surf the BBIE traffic looking for
interesting and criminally useful information.
I certainly have not s shred of evidence that they have sold out
to LEAs (Law enforement agencies) or been in any way approached by them.
My speculation is just that, speculation and not meant as any kind of
And perhaps my cynically paraniod speculation was offensive and
inappropriate, though my view is that such is rather normal in the
informal world of mailing lists and newsgroups inhabited by rather
shadowy semi-anonymous figures who express an interest in security
matters on public lists. Certainly some pretty unpleasant things have
apparently happened in the past in other situations.
But none of this has to do with gnuradio...
