    Just a little friendly fun by the guys over at AC in response to Kevin's posting about Schmidt being caught with a blackberry again.

    Egads! Our pals at CrackBerry have uncovered this picture of Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt apparently wielding a BlackBerry at a conference in Indonesia. And this isn't the first time the Google exec's been spotted with something other than one of his company's own Android devices.

    Why, Eric? Why? Let's throw out a few ideas.

    1.Even Eric Schmidt has to slum it every now and then.
    2.Someone told Eric to check out the exciting new browser and excellent gameplay on BlackBerry. That person is expected to be released from an Indonesian prison some time in 2015 for misleading Mr. Schmidt.
    3.He was trying to root the thing.
    4."Awwwww. Look at that little screen. It's so cute."
    5.Eric's got a thing for trackpads.
    6."See this thing? It'll be dead in two years."
    7.Blinking. Red. Light.
    8."What's CrackBerry Kevin's PIN again?
    9.Checking it for patent violations.
    10.Just had to check Android Central, and it was the only phone around.

    Again, all in good humor. I would venture to say that he (nor google) cares as much about Android for usability and only concerned with how many other people are using it.

    Funny stuff there. As long as people can dish it out AND take it - we'll all get along fine

    Look closely at the back of the BB...

    If there was an eleventh reason it would be...

    11) He actually thought he was using a phone with Android

    20) because when you travel out of the country on business and you don't want your company data transmitted openly across foreign networks, there's no App for that.
