Last week, John McAfee revealed that he was planning to start a new company that would make the Internet unhackable. Over the weekend, McAfee provided additional details regarding his plans at the C2SV Technology Conference.According to Mercury News, McAfee wants to build a pocket-size gadget that will allow users to surf the web securely and privately, away from the prying “eyes” of the US government.
The device, dubbed D-Central, will allegedly prevent the US National Security Agency from knowing the user’s identity or their location.
D-Central will communicate with tablets, smartphones and other devices to create a decentralized network that will be impossible to hack by intelligence agencies. A D-Central prototype is expected to be released in six months.
McAfee says that if the US government decides to ban D-Central, he’ll simply sell it in England, Japan or third world countries.
As TechCrunch highlights, the idea is very similar to the Occupy.here project.
