    And you know this how? Seriously, making assumptions just makes your argument null & void.
    Usually when people I know, Friends, Co-workers, Classmates, even acquaintances, say they hate BB, and its "A Business Man's Tool and nothing more", "It can't do anything besides e-mail" etc... etc... I Find out that most of the time, they've never even used a Blackberry at all! Or they never bothered to do their research to see what makes a BB so great.

    Something similar to what this guy from Forbs Magazine is talking about...
    I Apologize To My BlackBerry

    The % is not meant to be taken literally... obviously, It's just there to illustrate that its usually the case, people are being incredible ignorant. Most of the people who I was able to persuade them to try a BB, have made it their primary device and never looked back! They don't call it a CrackBerry for nothing.

    Hating a device is like tilting at windmills. The general public will think you're crazy. I didn't need to hate Honda when I bought a RAV4. Seems cultural revolution has found a battlefield in the smartphone space for some unknown reason. Nokia/Microsoft, if you're listening, please bring a quick and painless end to this lunacy.

    I know a trap when I see one. Apple is giving people little tidbits to go apple all the way. the WWDC discussed how if you have the iPhone,iPod,iBook,etc. you could automatically download stuff between devices. Nice, right?

    What they did not say is that they are playing catch up to google, amazon, and others and that you could already do that with blackberry using dropbox, amazon MP3, or 7digital (very nicely).
    The fee, which was briefly mentioned, just waiting for the build-up of data. The problem for me was that they will lure you in but you really need to use all apple stuff to make it beneficial. Then... "gotcha!". Apple has always been more expensive but they are hitting a critical mass like Microsoft did and like old softie they have already tried a few nefarious things in my view with developer restrictions and their choice not to support flash.
    Google and apple track your location and google reads your e-mail (via algorithms) to sell you stuff.
    I love my torch and the fact that I can use a system that is secure, has great e-mail, does not track me unless I tell it to, respects my privacy, has great and growing apps and does not force me to use their stuff. By the way, my playbook has 10% more processing power than the ipad2, 50% more RAM, dual speakers (yes, ipad2 only has 1 speaker on the bottom right), better cameras, full flash support and a great size for a mobile device.

    No thanks apple. I still love RIMM and oh yeah, the physical keyboard rocks!
    Um, yay?

    Sorry, considering the already pointed out errors in your scientific argument, taking this seriously is not possible.

    It never fails to amaze me - some people like their Berries. Some don't. Some have used them and outgrew them, some find they meet their needs. Does the juvenile marking of territory really need to happen?

    Yes actually! Your own signature covers a lot of territory.
