ten reasons I hate my blackberry.

  1. I do not understand why they bother having a web browser app (or any app for that matter) because trying to view a website is a slow and frustrating task. I swear it takes minutes to pull up a website. No thanks. I’d rather chew my arm off.
  2. There is absolutely no “cool” factor to it. In fact, I think I probably get negative “cool points” for having one.
  3. Blackberry should have gone out of business 5 years ago. Given the current mobile technology, it’s WAY behind the times. My guess is that corporate companies (like mine) keep blackberry in business. WHY?!?!
  4. I have major app envy. Pandora, word with friends, amazon, skype, allrecipes…sigh…in my dreams.
  5. It drops calls like crazy. I understand that this could be a network problem but I know other people who have the same network and their phones don’t drop calls.
  6. It’s embarrassing to have one. When out in public, I try to keep mine concealed as much as possible. I might as well be carrying around a walk-man.
  7. The ONLY thing that it’s good for is checking my work email and frankly that’s just not good enough.
  8. Design-wise it’s the most hideous, clunky piece of technology ever. I’d rank it right up there with the Zack Morris cell phone.
  9. The camera is a total piece.
  10. Because I’m so frustrated with Blackberry’s limited functionality, I’m think I’m going to have to buck-up and get a second phone or a tablet. Currently, I’m debating between the ipad 3 or the Samsung galaxy 7.7 tab. If anyone has any thoughts, I’d love to hear them!

just do it

Last Monday, I was so frustrated with my laptop; I broke down and decided to buy a new one. I’ve been complaining and hating on my ancient laptop for months now – maybe even a year. It was time.

I ordered it on Tuesday morning and it was delivered on Friday afternoon. It is sleek, sexy and works beautifully. I couldn’t be happier. For anyone who is debating on making a technology upgrade, don’t wait – just do it. I feel like a new woman!  

Details: purchased it from (they have great weekly specials) – $799

Laptop: HP Pavilion Entertainment PC (dv6755us); HP dv6755us Notebook Pc,15.4″ Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo T5450, 2GB,250HD,DVD-/+RW DL LS,Windows Vista Home Premium.
