HST's Dead Carcass: One of the guys at a satellite site recently upgraded his old Blackberry... to a new freaking Blackberry. I asked him: Why?!?!?!?! He told me he's just so used to the way it works, and I had to explain to him: For my department, these things are a nightmare, and they are not supported. So, best effort is the best we'll do. We got his email working, but his calendar won't sync.On of the secretaries asked why Blackberry's are back, and I told her it's akin to using a freaking Tandy computer. She then asked: What's a Tandy?
Stephen_Falken: I still have a Blackberry because I hate touch screen interfaces.
david_gaithersburg: FYI - The US government has mandated a monopoly for RIM. If you are a government employee, or a GovCon, then you are sporting a BB. That's about what, several million people? Not much, but enough to keep that company in business.
gweilo8888: Subby: Quit exaggerating.There's no WAY that RIM has as many as three users left.
