The eBay ad read "BlackBerry RIM sold AS IS!" So Eugene Sacks (not his real name), a Seattle computer consultant who always wanted one of the pager-size devices to check his e-mail, sent in a bid. For just $15.50, he bought the wireless device with 4 MB of memory.


The BlackBerry didn't come with a cable, synching station, software or a manual. But it did come with something even more valuable: a trove of corporate data.

wow, what a story! it begs the question, what if one were to part with one's blackberry? is there an easy way to wipe the device clean? does inserting a paper clip in the back accomplish that? i supposee its not that important, but when you start thinking about how much data a device like this can accumulate, it becomes intimate, and not something you want to share with strangers...

enter a random password 10 times when the device is locked.. this will delete anything and everything on the device.
