It was the biggest outage in years for BlackBerry users when a link in Research in Motion's infrastructure failed for three days resulting in an outage of e-mail, messaging and internet services across four continents.
While some users took to their PCs to tweet about their frustrations with RIM's service, iPhone and Android users voiced their smug opinions in thousands of hilarious posts. Here are some of our favourites:
@NooHar It's nice to see Blackberry showing respect for the loss of Steve Jobs with 3 days of silence. #BBJokes
@Rahul10e Someone stole my blackberry yesterday. It has since been returned #BBjokes
@NooHar Statistically, 10 out of 10 Blackberry users wont get this joke. #BBJokes

@MarkSimpsonHUFC And iPhone users everywhere smile smugly and search for the "I Told You So" app... #blackberry #BB's
@podakuni “So I bought an iPhone, Steve Jobs dies. I bought the Blackberry, BBM dies. Now going to buy the album of Justin Bieber!”
