Barack Obama holds his BlackBerryPresident Obama wants to hang onto his Blackberry. The IT department worries about information security, the government lawyers worry about record-keeping regulations, and the Secret Service worries about potentially dangerous location information. It’s amusing to see the President struggle with familiar resistance to bringing personal technology into the workplace. Instead, they offer him the rather unattractive Sectera Edge.
