from the fun to talk about department - President Elect's blackberry
It's no secret that Obama thinks very highly of his blackberry. Several times we've read that he was dreading the prospects of giving it up for security reason now that he is the most powerful man in the world. The NYT has an interesting slant to the story. They are trying to put a value to such endorsment, is it 10M, or 50M that RIM would have to pay? In a way the fact that it's all genuine, no strings attached is making Obama's comments about the Blackberry even more valuable. At the end of the day kudos to RIM for creating such a great product such that someone of the stature of Obama is endorsing it publicly to the world! Congrats RIM!
