Nobody likes being spied on, not even the United States Armed Services it seems. Perhaps that's why it's buying anti-NSA smartphones in bulk, and from a surprising source.
Remember the Silent Circle "Blackphone"? It's a super-secret smartphone I've been telling you about since last year. While these phones have been available to the public since last summer, it appears that the Department of Defense (DOD) is ready for more secure smartphones for work and play, too.
Silent Circle was founded by former Navy Seal Mike Janke, who worked with Phil Zimmermann, the creator of Pretty Good Protection (PGP), to create the NSA-proof Blackphone. The two started Silent Circle as a small business in California, but has since moved their company to Switzerland to prevent government snooping on client records.
