Well, I got  blackberry’s out of the blue Thank you email earlier today thanking me for being there for blackberry. This is coming hours after i read about their law suit by Canada and US customers. In a news reported by bbc news. “Blackberry customers in the US and Canada are suing Research in Motion over the recent global outage which left millions without email, instant messaging and net access (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15474910)”. The email sent to me read thus
