iPod Touch, The Best Secure Communicator ➝

Joseph Cox, writing for Wired:

If you want to communicate really securely, you may assume you need some government level spy training, a high tech encrypted phone, or at least a custom operating system. Nope. Not at all. It turns out the most secure communications device available to anyone, anywhere, right now is the humble iPod Touch.

I had never thought of the hyper-security-conscious when it comes to who the iPod Touch appeals to, but it makes perfect sense. It has all the conveniences of a smartphone without the inherently insecure cellular radio that’s constantly broadcasting your location to the nearest cell towers. I’ll keep this in mind if I ever become a secret agent.
