    Road Warriors - Worldwide Balckberry Outage
    As approximately 7:00 pm EST last night, BlackBerry began experiencing a worldwide outage across all carriers. Their network has been somewhat restored, but they are still dealing with various delays and outages.

    There are conflicting reports on regarding the geographic locations of this outage - Computer World is reporting that the outage only affects North America while discussions at BlackBerry Forums suggest that this may be a world wide issue.

    Wow! That's not very good. Glad I haven't upgraded (downgraded??) to a BlackBerry yet...

    A Blackberry is my far the best thing since the invention of the PC. I am not sure hat I would do with out it. However 12 hours with out emails was not a bad thing.

    Some of my buddies at work were complaining about this . I haven't made the switch yet but it is tempting.

    As an owner... maybe you can clear this up. What's so great about the blackberry service? Does it do something special that a Treo or a Q can't?

    I've never been able to figure this one out.

    Never used a Treo or a Q so I can not answer what is better about a Blackberry. But a Blackberry is mainly for emails and it does emails very well almost like being at a computer. As soon as someone send me an email I get it.

    BlackBerry Outage Update
    Update - most of the BlackBerry service is now back up and running, but some customers may experience delays as the company processes the backlog of e-mails. Millions of customers in the Western hemisphere were without the use of their BlackBerry devices for 9 hours Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. A system failure knocked out service and e-mail delivery was delayed or intermittent. Even after the initial problem was resolved customers still experienced delays due to the large amount of emails in their systems that needed to be processed.

    This is a perfect example of why more and more businesses are thinking about hosting their messaging systems externally. Hosting companies like 123Together.com alerted their customers to the problem early and the solution/interaction with RIM happened automatically in the background. We also pointed our customers to a readily available workaround that few IT departments were aware of or had deployed.
