You’re probably tired of all this outage talk seeing how it started a couple days ago, but just like how the major news channel will cover something to death, we will do the same. It was actually surprising this time around because there was such a media frenzy over this outage even though it’s happen in the past. In 2005, Australia’s Telstra was down 24 hours. Earlier the same year, there was a similar scenario to yesterday’s outage that took down Blackberry service in North America.
Now I clearly remember not being that pissed off when it went down two years ago. If it wasn’t for my Blackberry being provided by my work I probably would have tossed it against the wall, or maybe pull a Naomi and hit my assistant with it. It’s really scary to think how one can get addicted to such a piece of hardware.
But I’m preaching to the choir, it’s the “outsiders” that don’t understand our addiction. I’m sure they probably they thought the media frenzy was a big joke and for the crackberry users to just call each other. It’s not about being addicted to a piece of electronic hardware named after a fruit, but it’s the sentiment of being disconnected to the world? The Lost analogy is fitting because you might aswell have sent us to that island to fend for ourselves.
Or maybe it’s just me.
