CrackBerry Withdrawal

The folks over there at Research In Motion's had their hands full when their addiction fueling product, BlackBerry, had what was deemed a "critical severity outage" on Monday afternoon. Translation: Bye, bye, Blackberry. That little problem left bazillions of CrackBerry addicts stranded without wireless e-mail access.

RIM notified its clients of the outage in an e-mail.

The e-mail, which was sent to those bazillion people without access to their email, stated, "This is an emergency notification regarding the current BlackBerry Infrastructure outage....the outage affected business clients and "users of the Americas network."

"The Americas network"? I know that there's two (and that it's been like that for quite some time), but it always sounds funny when I hear it like that. The Americas. Plural. More than one America.

The notice gave no estimate on the cause, when service might be restored or how many people could be affected. And of course none of that mattered anyway because no one could read their email as it was.
