Yes I know, another post about phones. My apology to those who have never struggled with touch phone technology. The last sentence should bring a smile to lighten your day!
Ministers in the Westminster government have been told that they should not use iPhones for sensitive official communications.
Many ministers and advisers are devoted fans of the devices but the touch-screen phones, used by about 4 million people in Britain, have not been approved by information security experts for use in Whitehall.
Whitehall departments have been advised not to issue iPhones to staff because of the risk that they might be vulnerable to hacking or other interference. Instead ministers and staff have been advised to use Blackberry devices and other approved phones.
Apple denies the suggestion that iPhones are not secure although I have heard, quite off the record, they are not as secure as Blackberry. I can see a law suit looming.
There is good news for Apple lovers though, especially for those who enjoy a little spiritual guidance.
