Exploding Meteors and Asteroid Near Misses - Bad for Earth Good for Science Research?

With the recent explosion of a meteor in the Urals in Southern Russia and the near miss of a 130,000 metric ton asteroid with Earth Rep Lamar Smith from Texas thinks that we should be investing some serious money in asteroid watching and tracking.

calling those events "a stark reminder of the need to invest in space science."
Is this positive news for science and research?

And has the ubiquitous rise of digital video recorders and sites like youtube allowed for instantaneous viewing of the effects of the meteor hit help drive the point home?

Are Blackberry Z10 Strong Sales Just a Facade?

Deutsche Bank's Brian Modoff recently surveyed 60 BlackBerry carrier stores in the U.K. and Canada and found no sell-outs in the former, and a few in the latter that may have been driven by poor inventory.

"In Canada, many stores reported being sold out of the Z10 and the sales force was well-versed on the device's attributes; however, a few representatives told us that they did not receive a large initial inventory," Modoff said. "In the U.K., the sales force was better-versed on the feature sets relative to the week prior; however, no stores were sold out. ... We think the initial signs of this launch do not indicate the strong sales we would like to see."

Is Blackberry just unfixable at this point?
