Contracts. Read them.

I have to assume that the vast majority of people who sign contracts don't read them. That's about the only justification I can imagine for some of the contracts I've seen recently. The people drawing them up are working on the assumption that they will never have to justify what they've written. Like the proverbial grad student inserting a $20 bill into their thesis at the campus library, they insert clauses almost just to prove no one will ever read them.

"Crackberry", No More

Recent news such as RIM's colossal miss-steps concerning the playbook update and extended world-wide outages make it hard for one not to suspect that the Canadian PDA pioneer is approaching end days.

In fact, I'm writing a merry obituary right now, and looking forward to tossing my BES server to the curb as soon as I can manage it.
