The Story of the RedBerry 38

Howard H. Thaw writes "In my youniverse -- where I increasingly get to chose the devices I want, the services I need and customize them to my own specifications and standards - RIM offered me the BlackBerry device I wanted and needed - but that still only got me part of the way. Here's the story of my RedBerry, I hope it will inspire your own. According to Mathew Ingram, tech writer for the Globe and Mail in his column entitled Pimp Your Device this may very well be the world's only triple-coated and glazed Ferrari-red BlackBerry."

    Okay, this is really cool! Can anyone point me to some DIY article that shows how to get a computer desktop or tower case other than beige?


    FTA: There isn't a meeting that goes by - or a tradeshow, or media interview that someone doesn't salivate over my Red BlackBerry. As they brush their fingers over the glossy coat, there's a moment of hesitation before the inevitable question emerges: where did you ever get that from? And so the conversation goes.... Apparently I wasn't in any of the same meetings.

    This isn't even not a story (apologies to Peter Woit).

    Was this article posted on purpose to make everyone upset?

    He painted a blackberry. And then he makes it sound like he is uber cool. If he were 21, I might be mildly amused. He is old enough to be a 21 year old's grandfather.

    There is nothing amazing about this. It is not useful. It is not even cool in a geek kind of way. Superficial in the "look, mine is flashier than yours" without any added functionality, and without any real work on his end.

    Next week: I will show how I modded my tennis shoes with drywall compound when I was doing my weekend house project.
