There is a large number of people out there that don't realize that Canadians have invented tons of awesome things that we use every day. Basketball, electron microscopes, IMax movies, instant mashed potatoes, JAVA, odometers, and the telephone - all Canadian inventions, and that's barely even scratching the surface. Canada Post is honoring this long legacy of innovating and inventing with four new stamps commemorating important milestones along the way: the pacemaker, electric oven, electric wheelchair, and the BlackBerry!
While many people lately have declared that RIM is dying and has no future, it's nice to see the inventors of our beloved BlackBerry being honored in this way. Whether you are a fan or not, it's undeniable that Mike and Jim created something that revolutionized the way the world communicates. The stamps will be available in Canada starting August 17th, and more details can be found at the Canada Post source link below.
