Recently, I said goodbye to my ‘Beloved Blackberry…
It’s, as my husband says, ‘antiquated’.
I liked it, I really did not have any big complaints about it….
I do think it’s:
THIS is in no way a Blackberry bashing…
Having gotten used to it’s functions and operating system,
I didn’t want to get rid of my Blackberry.
with the recent crash of my laptop,
I had been bitten….
had a peak at continuity,
simplicity and efficiency.
I like those things.
sayonara my dear friend.
a big screen
and lot’s more…
I looked at the ‘new and improved’ Blackberries hoping I wouldn’t have to say Goodbye…
Sadly, they left me wondering what was new besides the color and shape,
because it was clearly still ‘Blackberry’.
let me give you the cons of going from a Blackberry to the iPhone:
I am (still) not a fan of touch screens for texting and emailing, though it is better than most touch screens
With Blackberry, I could use Bluetooth to transfer pictures to my Mac (with iPhone I can’t)
Blackberry was fun to say…
and everyone knew I hadn’t spent too much money on it.
(It annoys me when people think I spent a couple hundred on my new gadget…remember, I like efficiency and saving money…Yes, it was on sale for fifty bucks…)
Now, I am time and money efficient, because:
I will never have to buy multiple calendars because I can sync several,
I won’t ever have to print out directions/emails (saving trees),
I don’t need to pay for VZ Navigator or a GPS system,
I won’t lose my eyesight as quickly due to all of that unnecessary squinting,
I can work with my clients documents on the road because they link up between my computer and phone while tracking edits,
I can deposit checks by taking a picture of them (how cool is that?)…
