Since my introduction to BB in early April this year, I have fallen in love, as my ex husband would say. So to prove a point:
Oh BB, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…..
1. Free mobile instant messageing. What used to take money(sms) or email(when we were at our computers) we can do anywhere, make plans, talk crap, share photos and have group chats.
2. Access to your email, twitter, wordpress and obviously internet. Connected anywhere anytime!
3. Looks. BB you are stylish, okay maybe not so stylish, but you are cool. Where iphone is the geek that gets full marks and never goes out, BB is the awesome person that everyone wants to be friends with and is always seen having an awesome time.
4.Availability. To my knowledge in South Africa BB is more widely available to the consumer on “contract” or “pay as you go” than the iphone. As far as Im concerned you are a snooty ass yuppie for owning an iphone(and probably up to your eyeballs in debt), and us BB users hateyou becuase you condescend at very opportunity you have. We BBMer’s are constantly defending our bbs while you trash us with your ”mine is better than yours” attitude. Becuase yes maybe it is “better” tecnically, but as a social tool it sucks.
5. Social Butterfly. Again BB is the popular kid, more people own a BB therefore more people can connect and socialise with each other with it.
I dont really need to go on do I?
So it is totally messed up that perhaps one of the most important most loved and hated pieces of technology is now Fucked(temporarily).
But on the bright side people, doesnt this at least make you realize how much a part of your life your friends REALLY are? So when BBM is back on, let them know you care(PLEASE NO BROADCASTS ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD OR SIMILAR BULLTWANG)
Oh yeah…for those of you with phones other than the phone or blackberry….Get with it.
Wait….no… iphone users still irritate the living shit out of me.
I MISS YOU MY BBM FRIENDS, MAY WE BE REUNITED SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE!
