New BlackBerry user keeps head above water

Comments

See this cute little guy to your left? He’s Brian Bourke, a writer for the Waterloo Chronicle and a new BlackBerry user. Now, I know what you’re thinking – and apart from how that stain got on your shirt, you’re wondering what the big deal is. Well, he’s written an article that puts things into perspective about how we’ve gotten to where we have these days technology-wise. And he digs the ‘Berry. Welcome to the club, Brian.

“I suppose, like most people, I could live without it. However, it has, in some ways, become a matter of volume. Ten years ago, when we really started with email in the office, it was a relatively small part of the job. Now it’s mushroomed to the point where I can easily pull in 1,000 emails a week. That can pile up when you go away for a few days, or even for a weekend.

So the BlackBerry, in a sense, allows me to keep my electronic head above water.”

    Really enjoyed reading Brian Bourke’s article in the Waterloo Chronicle. It’s nice to know that the older generation appreciates the great features that are available with our BlackBerrys.

    What’s ironic is part of that 1,000 emails a week phenom can be partly or entirely blamed for people having Blackberrys and access to email anytime and anywhere there’s a cell signal.
