10 Things You Didn't Know About the BlackBerry
Found this on PCworld, pretty interesting. There are a few facts that are new to me:
1. The U.S. government uses more than 500,000 BlackBerries.
2. RIM co-CEO and co-founder Mike Lazaridis, taking a page from Bill Gates' book, dropped out of college before starting the company.
3. Lazaridis was born with the first name Mihalis in Instanbul, Turkey.
4. Lazaridis accepted an Oscar for technical achievement from actress Anne Heche for RIM's Digisync Film Barcode Reader.
Very interesting read-CEO and Oscar winner to boot!
LOL. An Oscar. That's funny. I know our state just got rid of a bunch of BlackBerry devices. Some agencies found they had paid for something like 3-4000 devices more then they actually needed. Some employees who absolutely no need for the device were using it and the state paying for the data plan.
The throwing of blackberries because the bought more than they needed it doesn't constitute lack of efficiency on the blackberries' part!
