Blackberry Officially Dead
Everybody should share their BB stories. I remember that I was in the old company, suddenly in charge of something for a while, and I got real busy. I whined for a BB, which was the ultimate status symbol, only for VP's and up. I loved it! My wife also got a bb.
Then the bad times came. The new bb's were all total junk. They never worked, and you always had to take out the battery to reset them. The wife got a Note 2.
Now, bb is going to form a company around bbm, which is a decades old messaging service, probably written in Fortran. The big companies will still buy it, but everybody and their dog make something better.
