They were kinda like GM. They sat on all of their profits and didn't adapt to the new threats to their business. If BB10 had come out in 2008 we'd still all be using BlackBerries.


Edit:
YES! I MADE IT TO THE FIRST POST ON PAGE 3000! Life is now complete.

No more RIM though, they're dropping that name altogether. Just BlackBerry from now on.

my first "smart" phone was a BB Bold 9000. never in my life have I ever owned such an irritating piece of tech. in my life. I went through 4 of them in 2 years, none of which were my fault. the first one bricked after a year, the refurb lasted 3 months, the second refurb was DOA, and the final refurb bricked after a month. after that i bought an AT&T go-phone and used it for 3 months until it was upgrade time.

Lol, the Pearl was actually a fun phone to write apps for. I think it's funny that your trackball would fall out.

I don't know about that.....I hated BB from the start. I was using Windows Mobile 2002 way back in jr high on a Dell Axim pda, had every version of WinMo through 6.1 on a Sammy phone (those were damn good phones too).


Even when Android first came out I wasn't impressed, my WinMo phones could do much more.

This. It actually might be higher though.

I wouldn't want signatures inline, but I wish it would display when you click the user or something .

Yep, I'm a desk jockey, so I'm always plunked squarely in front of a real life computer.

Proxy servers are blocked, and even if not I'm not about to flaunt the system to go on the Fest. Could get in big trouble for that. My phone works just fine.

IT restricts access to a variety of sites. Things that might be fun or not work related are one of the categories. Outgoing firewall stops the connection to the site.

Ya I've never checked to see if this forum is blocked at work, but I'm guessing it is. Using a work-around to access it would be a big no-no. However I do have two ginormous screens that enable multitasking. Maybe I'll bring it up to the bossman...
