BlackBerry Blames Outtage on Influx of Celebrity Sexts
Millions of BlackBerry users were unplugged from their mail and instant messaging services over the past few weeks with no word from the company about what caused the outtage.
But during a recent interview with Research in Motion CEO Pip Russell, OMGG.com made a startling discovery.
“We’ve seen a 1200% increase in celebrity sexting, and our servers can’t handle all the additional bandwidth,” Russell told our tech team. “Miley Cyrus alone has used over 18GB since mid-September.”
RIM is offering customers $100 worth of free apps to say sorry for the service shutdown, but can’t promise it won’t happen again.
“The sustained popularity of sexting has taken everyone at our company by surprise,” confessed RIM’s CEO. “We were certain that once Brett Favre stopped sending photos of his dick all over town it would finally take the burden off our servers.”
