Has our President been hanging around with George Bush a bit much lately? One may guess that based on what Obama has recently said. In a personal foreword (link to webpage with PDF) to document International Strategy for Cyberspace, the President claimed that the country would preserve the character of cyberspace and reduce the threats faced.

United States Army Will Use Android Smartphones

In a world that doesn’t, DROID DOES. The United States Army wants every soldier to carry an Android smartphone. A prototype running Android that is called the Joint Battle Command-Platform, is being developed by a tech nonprofit, MITRE, and is undergoing tests.

The development kit supporting it is called the Mobile/Handheld Computing Environment and will be released to app creators in July, according to the U.S. army. The envisioned applications for the JBC-Platform will run a wide scale of tasks. There will definitely be…
