I’ve recently become the proud Papa of a BlackBerry (BB). Just in case you’re not in the know, a BB is a basically a handheld computer that has the capacity to receive and reply to e-mail.
Since placing this slick little device into service I’ve found that my real computer time and henceforth blog posts as well as personal e-mails have fallen by the wayside.
While the BB is awesome to receive my mail and has great mapping and GPS I find that replying is a bit of a chore. Typing witty intelligent e-mails and blog posts is difficult enough with a real keyboard. Doing it via a keyboard the size of my hand and typing with my monkey thumbs is near impossible. As such I mostly read and don’t respond.
Technology is definatly fun and I’ll be the first to admit that I’m quite the geek. Heck, I once spent hours sitting on a couch with a friend while we compared BB features and talked tech (If we were teens we’d be in the basement playing D&D). I’ve heard how technology has caused us to become disconnected but this is the first time that I feel as if I’ve become impacted.
So, that being said if you’ve e-mailed and not received a reply I apologize, by how have responded and will make an attempt to be more attentive. I mean, we are in a relationship aren’t we. In addition I’ll try to keep this blog “fresher”.
I’ll do it right after I check my e-mail and map location on the BlackBerry.
