Default Gotta Admire the Genius of the Idiot Button

A big complaint about BB in general and PB per se was their slow boot time. BB designers and engineers put a dummy button on top of the Z10 to mimic an on/off switch. Brilliant! All it does is put the device into the equivalent of "Standby" on PlayBook OS. There has been zero talk of boot time as, for all practical purposes, QNX doesn't require it. A major, ignorant xxxxx has been squelched. Good job Waterloo.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, my PlayBook runs nonstop 24/7/365 and has for almost two years. The dummy button is brilliant.
