Aide Says John McCain Created The BlackBerry….. WTF?

The US Presidential race took a detour into the twilight zone today when an aide of Senator John McCain suggested that he was partially responsible for the creation of the BlackBerry:

Waving his BlackBerry personal digital assistant and citing McCain’s work as a senator, he told reporters Tuesday, “You’re looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create.”

One should keep in mind that McCain can’t use e-mail and has really never used a PC.

Another clearly smarter aide later said that it was “a boneheaded joke by a staffer.” I’m sure Al Gore (who once implied that he created the Internet) was laughing his head off someplace. Oddly, this didn’t have any effect on RIM stock today.

Now back to your regularly scheduled computer news and views.
