"You guys, I'm totally going to update that thing. I've just been, ah, look things have been really weird for me lately. My head... uh... is in a weird place." - Research in Motion

Research in Motion is pushing back any updates for a new BlackBerry PlayBook operating system until February of next year. Not good news for the company who has been eating a steady diet of crow since their servers crashed for three days, a few weeks ago. Also, did you know the PlayBook doesn't include BBM, BlackBerry's slick instant messaging service? That's one of the promised upcoming features, but seriously, I'm not sure how long people are going to wait before giving up, attaching a coat hanger to the tablet's antenna and trying to tune in Android.
