Boeing Black: This smartphone will self-destruct..
Saw this too :
Boeing is making a phone for 'Mission Impossible' agents
What a phone, could be interesting to own one!
They've been working on this for a couple of years, but I wonder if it's too little too late.
There have been inroads into the "super private" phones for a while now, and they certainly ramped up after the NSA leaks over the last year. Blackphone is one company taking the commercial route, and even the Cyanogenmod guys have been working on integrating security and trust directly into the OS.
If I didn't want anyone to access my iPhone info, I'd toss it in the toilet!
Now, that's a practical, cost effective and albeit simple idea, which works every single time.
Unfortunately, water damage isn't covered by insurance. (which I don't have.)
Don't just be too hyped about the Blackphone. Here's an article about it and mobile privacy.
Yeah, I think forking Android is not going to be a solution that people can live with, because then you're stuck with whatever proprietary system some other company has, which may or may not be secure, and if they go under then you're stuck with an outdated phone.
The best solution I've found is to roll your own. You can use textsecure or some other implementation of secure messaging using encryption, you can trust ephemeral messaging to some extent for stuff that you don't want to live forever, and hope that this is good enough.
This is of course not going to be enough if you're under surveillance by some (half competent) intelligence agency, but it should be "good enough" to protect your privacy on the go.
I'll stick with a burner phone.
Did they use Dreamliner technology? Will the battery start smoking in the middle of using the device?
