Research In Motion – LogoAfter several months without having FeedReader running I am back on the RSS wagon. In my opinion, not a moment too soon because I saw a pretty big story break this afternoon. The bolded emphasis on the story below is my own.
An outage has disconnected BlackBerry smart phones across North America.
AT&T Inc. says the disruption Monday is affecting all wireless carriers.
AT&T first learned about the problem at about 3:30 p.m. ET.
There’s no word on the cause or when the problem might be fixed.
BlackBerry maker Research in Motion did not immediately return a phone call.
The humor of that last sentence was not lost on me. Perhaps the CNN.com reporter was calling from his BlackBerry device?
