Has RIM Finally Fallen In?

If you're a Blackberry user in many parts of the world (including Europe, Middle East, Africa, India and South America) you'll likely find that you can't use Blackberry messaging and browsing and this has been the case for a day or so and will be remedied at some point in the future!

This was all caused by the failure of a single server in the UK which in a domino-like free-fall, resulted in a number of other servers going offline in sympathy.  It does, however, show the insanity in relying on a single company to deliver all of this information world-wide.

Yes, another Cloud service takes down thousands/millions of users in one fell swoop.  Cloud? Stability? Data Access?  Choose the first, or the others!  ;)
