Killing your competitor's killer app

Up until last week I was blissfully ignorant of the popularity of Blackberry devices to young people.  I was stuck in the mindset that business users and Obama were the main fans of the technology because of its email capabilities.

The mainstream media have been heavily publicizing the use of Blackberry's other messaging capabilities and how it was applied by naughty people to coordinate disorder.

I wonder if sales of Blackberry devices will be negatively effected by the discussions about giving police powers to shutdown services in times of unrest etc.

I see Apple have managed to arrange for Samsung's new tablet to be temporarily embargoed from sale in most of the EU.

It would make a terrible movie plot to link these events.
