Yes, I just recently got an iPhone. I dig it. I can text with my not so fat fingers, play games, browse the internet, and even make a phone call every once in a while. However, because my work doesn’t have Microsoft Outlook (they are stuck in the Groupwise age), my iPhone doesn’t support my work email. Its a good thing im not terribly important in the company, otherwise I might have to ditch the iPhone for a Blackjack (had it, broke it, probably wont get another), or a Blackberry.
I played with a company Blackberry before I got my iPhone because I was away from the office and needed access to my email. It probably wasnt a new one. It definitely wasn’t this new Blackberry Storm. Upon first glance this phone sounds awesome. Touch screen…check. Sleek in appearance…check. Verizon customers only…nope, i’m with AT&T. My carrier however, isn’t the reason for my current decision to never even look at a Blackberry again. Its the fans.
Fans? Of a cell phone? I sure as hell didn’t realize the cult following that is Crackberry. These people are crazy. I guess they held a contest to see what the fans would do to win one of ten new Blackberry Storms.
Now I’m a fan of ironic tattoos. I wish I could get away with having a random one, like a goldfish cracker in a fish bowl, or some stitching and buttons like im sewn up. Its not me. I have 4 tattoos, and with only one being highly visible (soon to be more so once my half sleeve starts), I dont think I can rock random tattoos. A deer head on my leg probably would just be weird. I like order. I like purpose to my ink. I wish I didn’t have to. So…more to my point, this guy apparently CAN rock the random ironic tattoo. He won a Blackberry for getting the new Storm tattooed to his calf, and writing iPhone sucks below it. I mean that is dedication, but I dont think Im willing to go so far as to have a phone that causes people to resort to this level of fandom. I’m conflicted. Im jealous he can rock the Blackberry tattoo because he is covered with others, however, I think he is a tard.
