It needs a specific key. A BES connection is secured by a key-pair that is generated when the BlackBerry is added to the BES. This allows for the 3DES encryption to occur for all communications over the BES connection.

The situation you're talking about applies to BIS where any handset can decrypt the encrypted messages.

This mis-understanding of the differences between BIS and BES lead to a lot of FUD unfortunately.

And you know Apple is keeping an eye on this... cuz India will be coming after them too for access to their iMessage comms, if they have not already done so.

Obama's "ZuneGate" 608

theodp writes "Barack Obama supporters were left shaking their heads after a report surfaced that the president-elect was using a Zune at the gym instead of an iPod. So why would Mac-user Obama be Zune-ing out? Could be one of those special-edition preloaded Zunes that Microsoft bestowed on Democratic National Convention attendees, suggests TechFlash, nixing the idea that the soon-to-be Leader of the Free World would waste time loading Parallels or Boot Camp in OS X just to use a Zune."

Submission + - Copyright or License Your Resume?

An anonymous reader writes: Have you ever submitted a resume to a recruiter, and the recruiter significantly modified your resume for submission to a prospective employer? In fact, they munged it to the point that you feel that not only the format was changed, but substantial content was modified? Over the years, I have modified my resume many times, working to make it as readable and informative as I can. I will admit it is long, but I have a lot of experience, and I feel it is well laid out and pretty easy to read. I feel that some of the modifications that recruiters make actually detract from the format, and sometimes make the meaning different from the original intent. I can understand removing my contact information when submitting, as they don't want employers doing an end-run around them to contact prospects. Would it be a good idea to attach some kind of copyright, or require that recruiters submit resumes as I submitted to them?
