Apple News:Black Budget: Defense Intelligence Agency owns 4000 NeXT Cubs

Black Budget: Defense Intelligence Agency owns 4000 NeXT Cubs
Where your taxes go
The Feds want theirs in black, too. The Defense Intelligence Agency, neighbor
to the CIA and NSA, just signed a huge maintenance contract with Next
Computer Inc. under which Steve Jobs and Co. promise to keep more than 4,000
of Next's black desktops up and running for at least another two years. It
seems the DIA wrote all its custom encryption software on NextStep Developer
and just can't let go of the black boxes -- not even for free tickets to Toy
Story.

Next is flattered that the DIA likes its state-of-the-art object software,
but even Next execs want the spooks to move on to more modern hardware.
