    Obama wants to keep his BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    Barack Obama wants his BlackBerry back—or at least some good way to communicate better with people outside his immediate circle.

    In excerpts from an interview conducted Tuesday with Barbara Walters in Chicago, Obama talked about the importance of breaking through the isolation faced by the president. The interview will air Wednesday on ABC starting with snippets on "Good Morning America" at dawn and then at 9 p.m. on a Barbara Walters special.

    I hope they take it away. Imagine how many people would be trying to hack the blackberry system if they don't. I see it this way, if they don't take it away then the blackberry would end up being the least secure device on the market. I don't really want hackers to targeting RIM and their servers, possibly crippling our devices. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I definitly see your point in a hackers and people with to much time on there hands going after it. But I don't doubt that there is people already doing that. So many banks use them, and think of all the information they hold, along with most governments use them. I think if someone wanted to crack them, it would have already started.

    Talk about good advertising, maybe soon enough everyone with have a Blackberry!!

    I agree. It's the most secure device out there. If it's good enough for the rest of the government, why isn't it good enough for the President?

    I think all the hubbub about the president having his Blackberry is craziness.

    Of course, we all remember the story last year about some whacko swiping a bunch of Blackberries left in the anteroom while government officials were in meetings. They brought that one upon themselves. If the BB's in question contain such sensitive data, perhaps the solution is the general with the "FOOTBALL" could have another case that the officials deposit their BB's in while in the meetings.

    The president, though powerful and in a sensitive position, is still a citizen. He should be afforded the same technological tools as anyone else.

    Mr. Obama is not a stupid man. I am certain he would be able to decide what he should and shouldn't do with his BB. I certainly don't do all my sensitive BUSINESS communications on my personal BB. I use my BES device for that. That device is not left laying around at trade events or in the waiting room at the office.

    If *I* can use my BB's responsibily, why can't the POTUS.

    The bottom line is... Mr. Obama is the BOSS. I say he should put his foot down and just tell the weenies that he is keeping his BB.

    Having worked around security clearance issues for over 5 years now, I have to say I totally agree. Security starts and ends with the individual.

    If Obama wants a BB as his personal device, it's up to him to use it as such. Certain rules will of course be imposed. There are a decent number of facilities where cell phones are not allowed -- even government issues ones. There are even more facilities where camera phones aren't allowed. It doesn't matter if you're the president or a bum on the street -- those are the rules.

    I'm still not sure what the big deal is.
    As always, just my opinion...

    And wouldn't those hackers be extremely bored if they managed to get into his BB and all they got was... "Hi Daddy, working hard?" or "Yo Michelle, wear the pink one tonight ;-)" or "Where do I get a new theme for this friggin' thing?"
