comment Why can the validity of an SSL certificate exceed the registration period of a domain?
I guess I’m interested in the technical limitations behind this. Why can I buy a valid certificate that will be recognized by pretty much all major players valid for 5 years when my domain is only registered for 1? Everything about this seems shady.

comment Why would configuring a Blackberry to turn radio off when charging help with security?
Realistically there is limited data available on the device itself. Many large corporations and commissions use these devices to communicate sensitive information which is controlled (you know this.) From another perspective: would a thief do better stealing a single ATM for the limited cache+cash+logs or would the thief be better with the ATM purely for the details needed to infiltrate the network? Speaking purely from experience many providers offer customized networks to anyone who's willing to front the cash. They're just trying to build security in layers. Props to them for trying!
