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.
