Default [2005-03-31] Naomi Campbell 'beat assistant with Blackberry'

Please Login to Remove!

"Supermodel Naomi Campbell has angrily rejected US reports that she assaulted a personal assistant with a PDA. The 34-year-old catwalk babe and author is alleged to have set about her PA with a Blackberry during a jaunt to Rio de Janeiro.

Campbell's spokesperson, Rob Shuter, strenuously denied the claims and issued a statement in which the supposed victim of the Blackberry-battering declared: "Naomi has always treated me with great respect. These ugly rumours are not true."

We're inclined to agree. The Blackberry is ill-suited for lackey-thrashing duty. Although a titanium-cased Palm immediately springs to mind, we at El Reg recommend the iPod mini - robust aluminium case and, if the USB cable is locked in, you can swing it like a handbag."

I have to disagree with the statement that the BlackBerry is ill suited to perform this function. I have found that BBs stand up to hard knocks better than many, if not most PDAs. If I ever found myself in need of beating someone about the head and shoulders with a (non-ruggedized) handheld computing device, the BlackBerry would probably be my first choice.

Yet another use for the renowned bb; now it's a weapon! Not too long ago, someone related me a story that the U.S. military was using a well-placed bb with GPS-homing capability on or near its target so a smart bomb could be delivered. What can we think of next for the "good" bb?
