    There have been a lot of comments made on this here and here and also here . Seems most are split on this. I think since the DOD and other Government agencies use them he should be allowed to as well. But that's just me.

    The DOD IT geeks can't get 256 encryption to work? Mmm... Maybe they should seek advise from No Such Agency!

    The way that I understand how it works from my IT guys is you can't use a BB if you want anything that is secert or high. They don't want to take any chances. My opion is if corperations can do it then why not everyone else. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    It isn't fair that Obama has to give up his prized Blackberry; isn't Blackberry the most secure device out there?? So if big huge corporations can keep and use their's for confidential emails and communications, why can't the man in charge of the world's largest corporation (the USA), keep his? It really amazes me and would love to understand their reasoning, or show proof why his Blackberry must be sacrificed.

    All he has to do is let his mother-in-law carry it, then he can just use it whenever he wants. After all, she is going to be living at his new home (I'm sure with us footing the bill for her).
