old tech gets left in the dust

you know, sometimes things just need to die...
were not using 8-track or cassette tape anymore, why should we be using RIM?

funny thing is while all this is happening and people are finally "waking up" to the single point of failure issues, others are still putting more of their business "in the cloud" - where exactly the same thing will happen :-(

Thank you. Seems you were the only person able to grasp this concept.

BTW if your BlackBerry was on wifi during the outage it worked fine. As that is a seperate entry point to their NOC from the carriers....

So you think companies can run their own servers better in one data center (or one little closet) than a larger company that builds multiple data centers and has "the cloud" redundantly located all over the country or world?

Not true. My blackberry on wifi was not working until the service was restored.

I believe YMMV based on an admin controlled setting in BES to force WiFi to go through the corporate channel/block list/filtering/single point of failure - or to allow it to use the WiFi's default gateway and strait onto the Internet
