    while at my sons bus stop playing a pumpkin carving app,.... the whole OS went black.. except for the minimized browser. gestures still worked. I could bring the browser in and out of fram, and I could pull down the settings configurations.... but it wasn't like annnnny thing I've ever heard of or seen before... I didn't reboot.. just walked 10 feet in a diff direction, and poof, it all came back just fine, as it was before...

    "things that make you go hmmmmm?" moment....


    but there has been weird electrical failures today, and the cell towers wernt able to connect to my wifi hot spot... even after doing all the standard rebooting of the network n such,....the the power went out for 3 secs just outta the blue...

    its a gorgeous clear blue sky in Houston today, so not weather related....

    maybe solar flare .. on oct 22 there was a big solar burst....I do not know, its crazy..freakin halloween, full moon, and....... probably all caused by the new surface tablet release....rofl jk

    You encountered a RIMISM. An unusual event that RIM devices do for no real good reason and no explanation is ever found. Like Area 51 for BlackBerry.
    Glad skies are beautiful in Houston I have a real rotten sky named Sandy over Baltimore.

    .... sudden power usage drops or surges elsewhere can cause the systems elsewhere (even 1k plus away) to fail !! Houston is very very likely connected to the east coast grid !

    At least you have photographic evidence unlike the UFO claims. Did you call Agents Mulder and Scully?

    Given that you are in Texas I think you should take this problem to the Sam Houston Institute of Technology. Better known by its initials.

    I have had this happen a couple of times (usually on beta). Its very strange when the keyboard "image" stays up as well when the keyboard is no longer present. It usually is the UI freezing up either partially or choking on a process before it spits it out and keeps running. In extreme cases you just need a reboot.
