Single point of failure?

Do people really rely on a device that can fail, nationwide, if someone screws up a software upgrade at a single location in the country (apparently the reason for the April 2007 Blackberry outage)? A quick perusal of Google indicates two outages last year and one in 2007. And this is supposed to be a device better suited to corporate use than an iPhone?

  1. It really is amazing how many times simple upgrades go wrong. You would think that these organizations would have some sort of software failure expert to reduce the risks.
