I've been watching this story since the summer regarding the possible shutdown of the BlackBerry device and network. In case you're not up to speed with techie gadgets, the BlackBerry is like a little PDA (a mini computer about the size of a wallet), that you can store records, instant message your friends, surf the web, etc, in the palm of your hand).
Their recent court trouble resulted in the BlackBerry company losing a big case. Well it looks like today the Supreme Court refused to review the appeal case. What does that mean if you're an owner of one of these devices? Well, unfortunately you might be out of service in a few months. That's a shame, especially if you recently purchased it. For others who were thinking about buying one, maybe just take a month or so to see what happens with this. Besides, it won't be long before cell phones have this capability anyway.
