    It's a hoax. Ignore it and have a better day.

    Not a dig @ the OP, but would an official release from RIM read as though it were written by an illiterate?

    And "Balsamic" had me rolling.... Think I'll have a salad with my dinner this evening.

    Speaking of "gullible", did you know it's the only word NOT in the Websters Dictionary?

    And if the email is a hoax, then you can COUNT on it being sent to thousands, if not millions of others, so you're not the lucky one.
