blackberry users.

The tool of pure evil.

I guess Blackberry is something that I don’t understand. Yea, they’re pretty and do a lot but in all reality, who needs that much phone? My foray into the world of wireless phones is pretty cheap and easy. I have a bottom of the line Samsung phone that I’ve beaten to shit in the past 2 years. It’s held up for me, surprisingly enough. My major complaint is with my carrier, but that’s a story for a different entry.

I can check email on my phone if I really need to. I use it predominantly for text messaging. I send about as many text messages on my phone as say your average 15 year old girl with a Sidekick.

I just don’t see the need for all that phone in my life, honestly.

The other day, Blackberry had a major service outage and some people reacted harshly to it. I can understand their woes because they’re important people that need their email updates while they leave the office for six minutes to get a latte.

I was reading this article on CNN.com. This quote stuck out to me…

“I’m mad — it’s enough already,” said a frustrated Stuart Gold, who said he gets 1,000 e-mails a day as director of field marketing for Web analytics company Omniture Inc.

Gold, who worked most of Monday on a laptop while traveling, plans to ask his company to buy him a backup smart phone from a rival like Palm Inc., which makes the Treo, in case BlackBerry service goes on the blink again.

“I don’t know what happened, I don’t care what happened. They need to save their excuses for someone who cares,” Gold said.

Way to sound like a complete baby, you douchebag.

I guess some people are so important that they can’t realize that technology fails from time to time.

I really wonder if Mr. Gold is a Comcast subscriber.
