Journal: Got a Blackberry

Journal by CrazySailor
Got a Blackberry 957 yesterday. Smaller than a laptop. Less useful than a laptop. Syncs with the corporate e-mail system. Less useful than my Palm. Hate the user interface. Dislike the tiny keyboard even more than learning Graffiti. Four! icons to deal with e-mail, all because the user interface is so thoroughly crippled by only having a clicking scroll wheel and a back button. Brain-damaged POS. Why do people put up with such crappy solutions to real needs?
