BlackBerry outage saved lives!
The semi-global 3-day failure of BlackBerry data service last week in Africa, Europe and the Middle East probably saved many lives.
Why? Because without data, fewer people used BlackBerries while driving, and therefore there were apparently fewer fatal car accidents.
Car accidents dropped by 40% in Abu Dhabi, and by 20% in Dubai during the outage.
