Bet On The Next Blackberry Blackout
Many of you probably don’t need a reminder that last Tuesday over 5 million US Blackberry users experienced 10 hours of technical problems leading to a nationwide blackout. For many of those 5 millions, the Blackberry - a wireless handheld device which supports push e-mail, mobile telephone, text messaging, internet faxing, web browsing and other wireless information services – is like oxygen, as they can’t live without it. Such a massive blackout may be a rare event, but if you think that it might repeat itself soon, one of the biggest online casino sites may have something for you.
Right now at that online casino, odds on when the next Blackberry blackout will occur are before November 30, 2007 at 2/1, and after that date are 1/3. “This blackout showed just how dependent of the Blackberry are many people in the US, as some of them really felt helpless for those 10 hours” says Reed Richards, a spokesperson for the online casino. In addition, for many business men the Blackberry functions as one of their main tools of work, which means that without it their productivity decreases dramatically.
The exact reasons for the blackout are still unknown, as the Canadian company that makes the Blackberry, “Research in Motion” is still investigating the case, but for many US users that may be too late, as the damage has already been done. Nevertheless, thanks to the online casino’s offer, US Blackberry users can make sure that next time they'll remain without their favorite mobile device, at least they’ll making some money out of it.
