So that's why my mobile device has been flaky lately

Looks like one for the RISKS Digest, to me:
Sporadic outages of BlackBerry messaging and email service spread to the U.S. and Canada on Wednesday, as problems stretched into the third day for Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa. [...] Unlike other cellphone makers, [Research in Motion] handles email and messaging traffic to and from its phones. When it encounters a problem, millions of subscribers are affected at once. There are about 70 million BlackBerry users around the world.
(MSNBC.) I heard about the overseas outages the other day and was kinda hoping against hope that it wouldn't reach North America.
