First, did you know what turns 58 years old this year? It is something that was first issued in 1950 so you could pay with plastic. That’s right everyone: The credit card.
Second, do you know what band had the 1966 hit “Good Vibrations”?
The Beach Boys!
Yes, I read my oatmeal packets this morning.
The third and final item to tackle today the Blackberry outage. How are all you Blackberry users feeling today? That brick on your side giving you a good feeling right about now? See, I always am asked why I prefer the windows mobile devices over the Blackberry. Correct me if I’m wrong please but this is Blackberry/RIM’s second major outage in 10 months (as reported by FOX News) and if I’m not missing the boat here but at least for the past 3-4 years, every year, they have had a major outage. Let’s not even discuss the synchronization issues with a Blackberry or “Blackberry in the Enterprise”. Not only did I own one back in their early days but I have also supported them in an Enterprise as well as in small organizations. So, for those of you that rely upon your emails while on the go, the next time you ask me why I don’t like Blackberry devices; just remember I’m pointing at you right now laughing sending email from my windows mobile device!
