The ultimate in branding?

I was recently at a meeting where all were instructed to turn off their Blackberries. Not iphones. Not cell phones. Blackberries. Everyone knew what was meant, though.

Has Blackberry become the new Kleenex? If so, they need to be careful. Aspirin was once a brand, but it became such a strong part of the lexicon, that Bayer lost the ability to retain it.
