  7. Wow, talk about poor reporting job. Ever hear of checking your resources first??? This article by Electronista is already been refuted by the DoD and they have already issued a statement to clarify their position. Do us a favor and update your article and report the truth and not someone elses made up stuff. See article http://www.computerworlduk.com/news...se-spokesman-says-dod-not-dumping-blackberry/ and use google as well maybe.

  8. To all those whining about article inaccuracy... stop your crying, this is not the Wall Street Journal or New York Times, errors happen. Deal with it.

    Part of Techspot News' charm is its inaccuracy...:p For example, this thread would have led to a massive Apple flame-in. Those are a lot more fun than run of the mill Pentagon denials....;)

    Then there's the whole "participant humiliation factor", when you find out you've been arguing the wrong side of a false article..

    I never let silly things like that bother me though, I get right back up on the TS news bucking horse and holler, "open the gate"....!!! :D
