When speaking of the BlackBerry smartphone, if you are discussing more than one, do you spell it “BlackBerrys” or “BlackBerries”? I know that when you are speaking of the fruit, multiples are “blackberries”. Any help?

    you are a moron for even asking this question.

    LOL, the mysteries of life. Since “Blackberry” is a brand name, I would think that the plural would be Blackberrys. Googling around, that appears to be the case, e.g.:

    I would tend to agree with Shirley at first. Think about dominoes and Dominos. The former are generic tile-based game pieces, and the latter is a brand name pizza company. But that raised another question-Does that system mean that additional stores are then called Dominoses? We’ll have to ask Brian…
