“PARIS (AP) – BlackBerry handhelds have been called addictive, invasive, wonderful – and now, a threat to French state secrets.

“French government security experts have reportedly banned – with mixed success – the use of BlackBerries in ministries and in the presidential palace, for fear that they are vulnerable to snooping by U.S. intelligence.”

I mean, if this is the best reason anyone can find to ban crackberries, well, okay.
