Weekend Contest: Holiday BlackBerry Haiku

22 Comments

Alright, people. Those ties can finally be untied, pens can be capped, and monitors can be turned off – the holidays are here, the holidays are now. With such an epic introduction, I really hope I haven’t built you up too much. HOWEVER, the holidays mean time away from work, more time for family/friends/substances. I still know that I’ll be clicking through my device from time to time, and you’ll be doing the same.

This week we’re taking a page out of Gizmodo’s book, and asking you to write your best haiku poem that relates to your BlackBerry addiction and the holidays. That’s it. Do your best, and you could be walking away with three games from Magmic.

Last week, we asked you folks to give your opinions on the iPhone vs. the BlackBerry. One opinion that stuck out was that of L.M. Lloyd, one of our more active commenters, who goes off on the two batteries that will be present in the iPhone.

“Well, the two batteries has to be one of the dumbest gimmicks I have ever heard. With mobile phones, the main thing limiting battery life is physical size.”

Congrats, Mr. Lloyd. Drop us a note to let us know which tones you’re looking for, and we’ll spread that yuletide cheer your way.

    The family stares daggers
    Christmas, I don’t care.

    Early present to myself.

    This isn’t a contest entry, but look at what’s on the mantle next to the picture. I’m from Florida, and he’s the Governor, Jeb Bush.

    in the early solstice dark,

    Up, down, left and right
    my trackball will get a break,
    And I will sleep at night

    users read on tiny screens,
    await haiku judgment…
