I just gotta tell ya. I don't get the whole Blackberry thing. You know, those little devices that let you text message each other? I was looking at cell phones the other day and they had IM and text messaging, and I thought, why would you do that instead of just calling and talking? Allie says, like if you were in a meeting and you were supposed to be paying attention, you could be IMing instead. Okaaay, so I can see a very limited use during occasional circumstances where this might be useful. Mostly though, I don't get it at all.

I don't get IM on the computer either. I've used it some in the past, but usually, about 5 minutes in, I start thinking I should just pick up the phone and call instead! 30 minutes on IM or 3 on the phone, with voice inflections! So, yeah, I don't get it.

Oh, and don't get me started about the size of those KEYBOARDS! --> <-- You gotta be kidding!
