Beauty Of BlackBerry

I enjoyed your article on the smartphone industry ("Get Smart," Oct. 30). However, you didn't place enough emphasis on the strength and security of RIM's integration between the device and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Much like Apple's iPod and iTunes, this is what makes it a truly seamless, reliable, and easy-to-use solution.

Architect Of Destruction

I see the same people who are agents of disruptive change for their users having "religious wars" over editors, compilers, browsers, and operating systems ("Are You A Change Agent? Easier Said Than Done," Nov. 6). Nowhere has it done more damage than in software development.

Granted, the winds of change are blowing at Microsoft. However, if the cadre in Redmond were really hip to Harold Wilson's meaning, they would have a chance of seeing the seeds of their own decay in the very tools they use and build.
