Blackberries, Blueberries

This year's biggest trend - the Blackberry

Let's be honest - if you don't have a blackberry, 9 times out of 10 you want one.

Okay, so it has come to that time where, if you think about it, can you really think of more than twenty people you know off the top of your head that do not have blackberries? It's getting a little ridiculous . . .

But the thing that is more ridiculous is the fact that people spend more time on their phones than speaking to each other in reality. It's actually quite a boring topic but it's important, because look around you next time you go out for lunch . . . at least 3 out of the four tables around you will have a blackberry on the table. Working in a restaurant, I see this all the time . . . and that red flashing light just catches the corner of your eye and you have to check what it message is.

Walking down the street, look around you . . . it's quiet funny actually (and I know I do it sometimes)
almost every second person you walk past will have a blackberry to their ear, or typing something, very fast.

Don't get me wrong, I love my blackberry, but it's driving me crazy when you can't even have a full conversation with the other person picking up their phones 'just to check'. It's almost like the blackberry raises you in social standing and the more you are on it, the higher you rise . . . but just like with mxit - IT DRIVES ME MAD! And yes, you are talking to people and whatnot, but think about the people around you.

what do you think?

that's my rant for the week ;)

{peace and love}


  1. Overseas I barely used my phone because it wasn't connected to the internet. It was bliss!

  2. I hear what you're saying - very true. Its ironical that people are trying to stay in communication with each other yet it keeps you from really communicating. People are living more and more on their phones and having less contact with people. Words are just words and they're replacing being with the person.

    Cool blog, keep it up.

  3. Bobby . . . funny how at home we NEED them but away, they go out of mind.
