Eulogy for BlackBerry

Aaaaah oh. Not the best to start a new product launch that the future of the whole company is dependent on. 

From NY Magazine, A Eulogy for My Dead BlackBerry 10 Demo, Which Lived for Four Days

Kevin Roose on his using his BlackBerry Z10 review unit:
"But then you died.  After four days of trying you out, for no reason at all, you simply refused to turn on.  I removed and replaced your battery, tried to manually reset you, and even connected you to my laptop to see if I could revive you that way.  But you stayed there, motionless and dark, the lifeblood drained from your mini-USB port."

Hey, what’s that noise?  BlackBerry circling the drain.
