So do Blackberry users put others at risk? I don’t know about that, like I’ve already said, it’s not so much the device as it’s the person who can’t put it down that is the risk.
However, I do know that in a law firm, having a blackberry not work can be a hazard! Lawyers really don’t like when their Blackberries don’t work. I also know I was a hazard to other people during the 2 hours I spent today trying to get a new Blackberry to authorize on the BES server! Somehow after many unsuccessful attempts at Enterprise Activation, it suddenly just activated and started working. I have no idea why, unless I managed to move into an area with better wireless coverage going from the attorney’s office down to my desk and in to the server room and that caused it to connect.
All I do know, is that if this becomes a regular feature of my weeks, I’m going to become dangerous to be around..:)
At least the week is over and we have a weekend to enjoy!
