and the fbo.gov
site. Apple will not get FIPS certification because of its supply chain vulnerability. Too many of the iPad's components are made in the PRC. Moving manufacture out of PRC would adversely impact Apple's profit margins too. With "Russian security software" for iPads. What!? lol no not going to happen ever... On top of that the US Military and US Air Force are the same thing. Well, USAF is just a branch of US Military, but you get what I'm saying. And it's true, why give the Air Force iPad's and the rest of the Military Android? That would be the biggest clusterfrack of all time. Very unlikely rumor for the Air Force and Apple. Most likely he said ''iPad'' like some people say ''kleenex'', or someone placed an order not knowing what they were doing. Like they didin't know that the iPad does not have the security credentials and the US Military already have picked Android as the moblie OS of the US Military. McCarthy the same guy who said no to this OK'd the US Military for a custom Android OS. We will see these devices out this year. "each version of the Android OS will be certified once for all federal agencies". At 1st it was the DOD and today was the NSA. Now that's real news. This literally can't happen, and it got officially canceled Feb 16th.
