    Looking at the Crackberry Nation for some help. My kid is working a social project on the global impact of a product - and she picked Blackberry (made Dad so proud) and I was wondering if I could post some questions to help her?
    Thanks in Advance:

    1. What kind or make?

    2. When was it first invented?

    3. Who invented it?

    4. Where is it produced?

    5. What is it made from?

    6. Are those involved in its production fairly compensated?

    7. How do they enhance your life?

    8. Do they enhance society?

    9. What corporations are involved? Why?

    10. Do they make life easier or more difficult in Canada/USA?

    11. Are profits generated?

    12. Will a cell phone help me in the future?

    13. What are the negative aspects of use and ownership?

    14. Which nations have the most to gain or lose from this product?

    15. Have they helped or hindered their national development?

    Question 3 has an obvious answer: Research In Motion

    As for the owner, wikipedia has tons of information you could use too, much of the answers are found there: BlackBerry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and here: Research In Motion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
