Silent Circle launches new encryption app

Silent Circle have announced a new encryption app:

The technology uses a sophisticated peer-to-peer encryption technique that allows users to send encrypted files of up to 60 megabytes through a “Silent Text” app.

“We feel that every citizen has a right to communicate,” Janke says, “the right to send data without the fear of it being grabbed out of the air and used by criminals, stored by governments, and aggregated by companies that sell it.”

I can see the practical value in this (for example, if you need to send sensitive documents from work to home), as well as the human rights slant that the article explores.
