Kevin Drum (CalPundit) is reading Beyond Fear, a new book by security expert Bruce Schneier (Crypto-Gram). Kevin hasn't finished the book yet, but he did share this *very* interesting paragraph about cell phone security:
Nokia spends about a hundred times more money per phone on battery security than on communications security. The security system senses when a consumer uses a third-party battery and switches the phone into maximum power-consumption mode; the point is to ensure that consumers buy only Nokia batteries.
I look forward to reading Kevin's review of the book if he decides to write one.
