my blackberry's so called life...

last night, i layed in my bed pondering all the hoopla that is surrounding the i-pad, apple's newest doohickey that is making all the techies and wannabe apple know-it-alls go crazy. (by the way, when my roommate told me it was called the i-pad, i immediately responded, "with wings?!" later cnn and other sites stole my comedic thunder by publicly denouncing the name because of its similarity to a sanitary napkin...) MOVING ON...

i immediately thought of my own diminutive sidekick, good old blackberry 8330. my little keyboarded friend and i have been through quite a lot. most notably, the crashes while using navigation... the display freezing whenever i send a text... the track ball completely crapping out leaving me to try and remember how to use the quick keys... oh the memories (my memories, not little 8330's... he only has a few MBs and i drunkenly take a lot of pictures of my roommate's cats).

sometimes i just want to call mr. blackberry and ask... "do you ever wake up and say 'shit. i'm still mr. blackberry.'?" he must wake up, go to the office and say "ladies and gentleman, welcome to day 574 of 'how the hell we attempt to stay relevant!'"

anyways, just wanted to rant. obviously, captain blackberry wont ever make it to this little blip on the internet radar... BUT if you do, PLEASE PLEASE send me a new blackberry... and make it as close to the i-sanitary napkin as possible!!! thanks!
