A retired techie is discussing what may be the most secure mobile device in the world: President Obama's Blackberry.
Richard "Dickie" George, a retired technical director for the National Security Agency, told CNNMoney that the NSA set up a special lab to design Obama's mobile device when the president-elect requested one back in 2008.
"You try to get rid of any functionality that's not really required," George said. "Every piece of functionality is an opportunity for the adversary."
As CNNMoney put it, "in the end, that meant taking most of the fun out of the phone: the president can't play Angry Birds, for example."
Officials have never confirmed exactly what Obama can do with his smart phone, but the presumption is that can e-mail or possibly text aides and close friends.
