The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

They don't call 'em Crackberries

... for nothing! I was curious as to why my little helper wasn't reading my e-mails this morning. Now I know why:

NewsChannel 4 learned of a massive system failure that affected all BlackBerry users in the western hemisphere late Tuesday.

The RIM Company, which stands for Research In Motion, developed BlackBerry technology and said its infrastructure failed around 8 p.m. Tuesday and was until about 7 a.m. Wenesday.

Oof, that's gonna hurt the team!

This was actually a very dangerous situation. All of Congress and the Whitehouse rely on blackberries for communication, and this left them in the lurch until backup systems were used to communicate.

Also, emergency response teams rely on these to work during disasters. The blackberry blackout would have left us even more vulnerable during a major attack or disaster.
