Ectaco's answer to a browser request

Quote:
Good Day X

Thank you for contacting ECTACO.

To Answer your question - we don’t' include a web browser in jet Book Color
and it is not only a security issue for The customer but it is a security
issue for us. We are taking all measures to ensure there is no access to the
proprietary software on the device


I hope it helped to answer your question.

Have a great day

Xxxxx

Best regards,
Ectaco - Customer care

Ectaco INC

Does that mean that Ectaco doesn't trust their customers? Anyway, I'm a little bit disappointed by the reaction.

I think they just make stuff up as they go along.

I think the "WeCare" guy is one of those at Ectaco who argued for the removal of the
browser, as an easy way to avoid problems with their Gov contracts.

I would hope that they become more widely used, and a number of them become available refurbished or used, at a much lower price. Then they might attract the interest
of the WM hacking community. I doubt that most companies have the resources to actually go through all the regs that apply to offering a device like this to the government. They usually rely of some contracted advisors and the spec requirements
mentioned in the bid request. It was totally ridicules before 9/11, it must be crazy now.

Something like this might become acceptable;

I am giving it a try on my PC and it seems to be working fine here on MR. The Firefox is
setup with Bookmarks and Tabs for the military user, which is fine by this ex-PltSgt. I am
running it off my SD card reader. Someone might try it on their JBC, probably won't boot
but you never know.
