The Washington Post wrote a tongue-in-cheek editorial about the worst ideas of the decade, and the BlackBerry was named one of them. The reason? “Thanks to the BlackBerry…we are always connected.”
The editorial reads like one of Andy Rooney of 60 Minutes’ rants where an old man talks about how he doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about and what this crazy device called the “BumbleBerry” even does. The author goes on to talk about how the problem with email is that “the more we emails we send, the more we receive.” I’m not sure what he’s getting at exactly but the idea of ubiquitous communication being a bad thing is so funny I couldn’t not post.
