    Was just watching bbin's interview with Gary Kalssen (inventor of BBM)

    Apparently in 2004 they were getting ready for an internal launch of BBM when an early beta leaked, swept across the company & caused havoc. It's ironic that now 9 years later when getting ready for a cross-platform launch the same thing happened. An early beta leaked & caused havoc.

    I recommend watching the entire interview, but if you want to part about 2004 go to 9:22

    Interesting that he was confronted about why BBM for iOS was pulled when Android was the problem. Good video.

    So, we should feel lucky that all of us installing entire leaked OS's haven't caused BlackBerry to literally implode... oh wait... oh boy... woops.

    Its more disappointing than it is ironic to see this happening again.

    Thing is, it was just starting out, the servers were new and BBM was pretty much new to them.
