The government is BlackBerry's last customer

There's really no such thing as a "smart" phone. Like the average American family, they all have their own problems. But if smart phones are a family, the BlackBerry is the lame brother-in-law on welfare, alienated from everyone except his government paycheck.

Inside the Beltway, time stands still. A half million federal workers — President Obama and his staff among them — are still thumbing little black keyboards on little black devices. And that number hasn’t dipped over the past few years while Research in Motion, BlackBerry’s maker, has recorded plummeting sales everywhere else.

While the rest of America moves on to iPhones and Androids, the feds are still rubbing their thumbs around on the BlackBerry ball. And that sounds mildly gross.
