    A strangely silent Blackberry tells of husband's disappearance

    Advertisement



    William McGuire's Blackberry seemed permanently fused to his hand. From morning to night, the computer analyst thumbed out messages to co-workers and clients. Whether Saturday, dinnertime or a holiday, the 39-year-old always had a few moments to offer advice about a crashed server or forward a hokey joke.

    "He was a power user," recalled a co-worker at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Jason Steinhauser, Monday at the murder trial of McGuire's wife.

    "I never knew him to turn it off for any reason," he testified.

    McGuire's use of the handheld device, described by three colleagues as heavy even for their tech-dependent field, came to an abrupt end on April 30, 2004, when the Blackberry stopped sending and receiving messages. Five days later, his severed legs were pulled from the Chesapeake Bay in a suitcase.

    haha, I was just relaying this story to someone else and this just came out of my mouth:
    "well, I guess that's really the only way to stop a crackberry addiction."

    Maybe the wife was finally fed up w/ his crackberry use. I've heard of other annoyed spouses but that's beyond extreme.

    Re: A strangely silent Blackberry tells of husband's disappearance

    Sounds like a desperate housewives episode to me..... My condolences to his friends and family . I pray for justice in this case. And I hope the blackberry can be beyond instrumental in that respect... On a lighter note ...the increase fame may lead to better sales and profits and speed up the delivery of our wifi/with video recording capabilities full qwerty blackberry! Sadly, if he he had the ability to videorecord ... Perhaps this would've been an open-and-shut case!!!
