Update: Canada voted and the BlackBerry is the 18th Greatest Canadian Invention

Today is the day that we will find out if the BlackBerry, according to CBC viewers, is the Greatest Canadian Invention.

The BlackBerry, along with 49 other Canadian inventions are in the running and votes will be tallied from all over Canada to see who the winner is.

As much as we love the BlackBerry I don’t think it has too much of a chance. Although it may make the short list, it has to compete with inventions such as the telephone, the electric oven, insulin, and even the retractable beer carton handle.

How could the BlackBerry possibly compete with the retractable beer carton handle?

If you live in Canada, you can catch the show tonight at 8:00 P.M. on your local CBC affiliate.
