I was thinking the same thing Cobra. We sure do attract high quality content and users here.
I'm glad after 8+ years, RIM FINALLY gets its, just how important PIN/BBM messaging is/could have been. Sadly at present its about the only unique feature left, PUSH is all over (FREE PUSH available on Nokia and others). Plus, unlike years ago other platforms now have MSN IM, ICQ, etc and some users are actually avoiding BB because they prefer to use universal IM services and not one that either locks friends IN or OUT of your circle.
I'm locked to BB for the same reason... PIN messaging.
