Re: ASK A SPECIAL CONSTABLE

Re: Encrypted scanners

Prior to retiring I was the radio system project lead at McMaster University. Went from simple repeated UHF to digital, encrypted trunked MOTOTRBO system. It was a very lengthy and complex project. Brought 13 campus two-way radio user groups into one system. Security dispatch controlled the system. ...

Re: Encrypted scanners

I wanted to edit my post but... Since Wayner posted.. I don't know much about radios, never mind the encrypted technology, however, I was made to believe that one, having the right equipment, can still listen to the encrypted transmission for few seconds before 'it' changes frequency. There is a us...

High Security Samsung BlackBerry Tablet

Seems Blackberry has learned that building partnerships is better than forging ahead with its own devices. The giant Samsung has obviously read between the lines and has seized and opportunity to make use of Blackberry's security technology and reputation in security. Interesting that even IBM playe...

Re: New look for the Toronto PS

I remember the OPP had some all white cars back in the old black & white days. Everyone was on the lookout for the black & whites that the all white cruisers, even with the extra high cherry, went virtually unseen....till it was too late. http://farm9.static.flickr.com/8659/16278250231_1354f...

Re: New iPhones

When the Z30 came out I upgraded from the Z10. The Z30 has stellar battery life. The assorted grand kids have a variety of phone from iphone to various Android devices. Sames with friends. Odd, all of them have ended up replacing their devices at some point due to them crapping out. The wife took my...

Re: New iPhones

Been reading some unflattering articles about "touch disease" on iphones and exploding Galaxy S7's. Maybe these phone giants are rushing devices to market, with fingers crossed, hoping to keep an edge. Apple in particular seems to have been faced with a number of issues lately. The Europea...
