BlackBerry   outage Another   burning   platform   Oct   12th   2011,   7:52   by   P.L.   YOU can’t live with them, but you can’t live without them. Users of BlackBerry smartphones often curse the flashing red light that tells them, wherever they are, that yet another e-mail demands their attention. But they curse its absence even more. On October 11th lots of them, in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India and South America, had to twiddle their thumbs rather than click away at their smartphones. For many, service had been interrupted for the second day running. On October 12th problems were reported in North America, too. Plenty tweeted their rage at Research in Motion (RIM), the Canadian company that makes BlackBerrys—presumably from other devices.   For RIM, the interruptions could scarcely have come at a worse time. The company has had a bad year.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
