    Post your Blackberry jokes here
    BB users won't be able to see them :D :D

    I'll start

    My colleague was so frustrated with the current BB issues that he threw his BB into his hot drink.

    All a bit of a storm in a teacup if you ask me.

    I liked the quote from one user in an article yesterday:

    "My blackberry has not worked for hours, I am now hyperventilating!!!"

    Get a life FFS!

    :D

    Interesting.
    I am responsible (amongst a host of other things) for releases for a small company.
    At best, we can roll back in under a second.
    At worst we roll back in under five minutes.

    And trust me we're a long way from perfect.

    How the hell can a software bug cause this (unless they've hit an issue that was lurking).

    Lurking...that's a lovely word.

    My old boss microwaved his after it "froze once too often"

    Just been reading some of the comments on the BBC site about Blackberry.

    You'd swear someone had kidnapped their child the way some of the posters are talking.

    It's a machine, they fail from time-to-time.

    Perspective folks, perspective.

    Blackberries don't they contain lots of anti-oxidants. :thumb: Very good for your health they tell me. If I nibble a bit off the casing everyday will that offset the microwaves that are frying my brain. :confused:

    There might be a link between the two actually seeing as RIM were testing if it would be possible to disable UK BBM traffic in the event of another riot type situation (at the request of HM government).

    And add that to the recent talk about the MOD blocking GPS signals in NE Scotland as part of a military test and you have a full blown conspiracy!
