BlackBerry, Berry Useless
At the beginning of the year, BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion announced it was moving its HQ to Irving -- gonna add about a thousand jobs over the next few years, says here . Of course, that assumes people will still be using their BlackBerrys over the next few years -- because a "critical severity outage" like the one every single North American BlackBerry user is experiencing this very moment ain't gonna do much for business. On the other hand, there's always something called "family" with which you can kill some unexpected free time. --Robert Wilonsky
