Oh come on ... I chuckled when I read that. You have to remeber that it was, most likely, written by BlackBerry users trying to poke fun at the situation. The joke was much closer to something that would be read on David Letterman's Top Ten List than any sort of meaningful commentary.

What bothered me more was the headline which gave credit to a writer for working out the procedure for installing cross-carrier BlackBerry OS':
Hayden James from has figured out a way to install BlackBerry OS 4.1 on 71xx series and 72xx series BlackBerry devices.
The development and testing of that procedure was a colaborative effort involving many different members of this and other forum communities. (although, to be fair, Mr. James did not try to take credit ... he simply reported the procedure)
