I had someone ask me that question the other day, which also happened to be Labour Day. My answer to the question was of course all the obvious reasons why the BlackBerry is such a great device, but, also one other very big reason. I asked him to remove the battery from his phone to see the country of manufacturing. First off, he didn't have a removable battery, but, more important was my phone said Mexico. A country that belongs to NAFTA. His was China. My choices these days are to support companies that support their workers rights and pay taxes that help to improve quality of life and put food on the dinner table. Respectful working conditions and respect of the worker. Just my 2 cents. Some companies feel that the responsibility of providing jobs in North America is not their's. I feel it is everyone's responsibility to not bite the hands that feed them. My Wednesday thought of the day.
