Really poor journalism here
Come on - your own article says that a spin doctor waved his own mobile about (in this case a blackberry) and said John McCain sat on the government committee that pushed through legislation that enabled modern comms technology to happen. That's a far cry from "John McCain invented the Blackberry."
Remove the article - its sensationalist and shoddy journalism and frankly you can do better.
I can't say I'm in favour of McCain or his views, or that modern American comms tech is anything to be bragging about. I'm just complaining about this awful article that will doubtless be all over the tabloids tomorrow because the Register is supposed to be good at technical issues.
