BlackBerry noted as center of controversy

Comments

I think we can all agree that the BlackBerry is a great all-around tool. A never-leave-home-without-it kind of tool. The uses, though, keep coming out of the woodwork thanks to those celebrities in Hollywood. An article from the Chicago Tribune highlights the crazy year BlackBerrys have had in celeb-land.

“For a pocket-size gadget, the BlackBerry seems to be at the center of a lot of controversy in celebland this year. Last spring, anger management flunkee Naomi Campbell was accused of beaning an assistant in the head with her crystal-encrusted BlackBerry. Now, Us Weekly reveals that Ryan Phillippe’s BlackBerry confirmed the suspicions of his wife, Reese Witherspoon, that he was cheating with his film co-star Abbie Cornish.”

And now we’ve got the whole FedEx nonsense to add to the scorecard. Now, I know how I feel when certain “indie” bands I adore get scooped up by the mainstream – a little betrayed and jealous. How do you folks feel about the ‘Berry being highlighted in the media more these days after the supposed fall of the Sidekick?
