DHS to go low-tech

The Homeland Security Authorization Act requires that more than 50 percent of the components in any end product bought by the Department of Homeland Security be produced or manufactured in the U.S. Oops:

“With this purchasing prohibition, I guess (the department) will have to learn to do without computers and cell phones,” ITAA President Harris Miller said in a statement. “I cannot think of a single U.S. manufacturer that could meet this 50 percent threshold for these devices, and I doubt that those charged with protecting our safety here at home can either.”
