Here's an interesting article that I'm sure a lot of people here will enjoy.
It really sounds fanboi-ish, but Blackberry fanbois haven't become annoying yet, unlike their Apple counterparts. http://www.cantechle...ve-a-blackberry0723/
Granted, BlackBerry has done an awful job of marketing these things. What few ads there have been have been weak. They should have licensed the song “Back in Black” and done a bad-ass, kick-ass, in-your-face campaign showing off their new badass line. Oh well. That’s what happens when you let technologists run a company — they create amazing technology but don’t know jack about selling it.
"In a world where every detail of your life is scooped up and sliced and diced until each one of us is living our own little Truman Show, privacy is the enemy. Apple and Google harvest your data and share it with the BlackBerry not only doesn’t harvest your data, it can’t. The technology prohibits it."
That still doesn’t explain the raw hatred for the brand. From whence did this come? Then it dawned on me: Of all the incredible features on this thing, privacy is the one that certain powerful people probably wouldn’t like.
What I do know is that rocking a BlackBerry makes them work a bit harder at turning my life into the Truman Show.
Definitely a refreshing read compared to most of the drivel out there. But then again, I'm very partial to articles that manage to sound like they were written by a human, and not a PR department.
