It is important to be clear:
- RIM already has a workaround available. The workaround is real.
- You are guaranteed advance notice of shutdown. Even NTP agreed to this.
The sky is NOT falling.
Great post Mark!
You are 100% right about the media having a field day with this whole deal. The funny part is that they barely have anything to say, usually is something like "BlackBerry might shut down leaving [insert crazy number of users here] users without service because of a patent infringement suit...now the weather..." and nothing else. The info posted in this forum is much more informative than the turds at the news creating all this hype.
