This is all well and good, and they're trying to convince us all that its being done "for our own good". The problem with this scheme is not only the fact that those using BlackBerries for illegal things will have them registered in another name, or just plain steal them from legitimate consumers. Another problem we WILL see is; once this becomes acceptable in one place, it becomes standard everywhere. If you don't fully believe me on this, take a look at how helmet laws and emissions testing became so prevalent. First, it is touted as being "for your own good", then it is sold to you by showing how happy the people who already lost their liberties appear to be. Don't fall for the hype.
Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?
