PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Fascinating stuff, but not entirely unexpected. As most of you will know, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion is working on a tablet dubbed the BlackPad, and according to several sources reporting to Bloomberg, the device will ship with software written by QNs Software Systems, which RIM purchased earlier this year.

I know that it runs medical equipment and weapons, haven't heard about nuclear power plants, YET.

Well, it isn't a *power* reactor, but QNX does control several General Atomics TRIGA Reactors. And has since the 1990s (when some IC-DOS code was ported to QNX 4.0).

OTOH, I am currently in the process of rewriting that software to run under Linux.
