    BlackBerry holds strong through the Quake

    Many of you have already heard about the 5.8 scale earthquake that wobbled its way through the DC, Virginia area. We know from history that whenever there is a crisis people pick up the phone, and immediately call their loved ones to make sure they are ok. This sudden spike in calls creates a "call spike", and in return blocks everyone else from making calls.
    To the normal person brief interrupts may be looked at as minor annoyances. In the business world these minor interrupts cost money, lots of money. In a recent article from Bloomburg BlackBerry was noted to rise to the occasion and continue to push out emails despite the outages. I too am a witness to this little devices resilience as it kept pumping out emails and text messages as if nothing ever happened.This is proof that BlackBerry is rock solid.

    It's amazing that not everyone are using BlackBerrys. The work when others fall by the wayside...
