Crackberry or mePhone

Crackberry or mePhone: That Is The Question

Crackberry or mePhone: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to touch
The screen and its outrageous apps,
Or take fingers to keyboard buttons,
And by opposing one of them? To betray: and surf;
Oh more; and by surf I mean endless information
The heart-ache and shocks o'r this decision
That plastic to palm, 'tis communication
Devoutly to be wish'd. To touch, or push;
To push: perchance all the time: ay, there's the rub;
For when surfing what dreams may come
When we have googled this mortal quest,
Must give us cause: which to pick?

*Verse adapted from Act Three, Scene One of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet". Note that I have cited the appropriate source and the blogger cannot take me down for plagiarism. Eee gads! The ramifications of the blogger bringing me down!

Don't bring me down, blogg'r!
Don't bring me down, blogg'r!
Don't bring me down...
Down, down, down, down... oooh who hoo.
I'll tell you once more, before I steal some info.
Don't bring me down.

**There I go again. Previous sentence structure and thoughts taken from ELO's "Don't Bring Me Down". But you knew that. You're smart and well informed when it comes to pop culture. You also knew that "To Be or Not to Be" is Shakespeare. You prolly like Shakespeare. Or at least the fancy pants that he was known to wear.

***The referencial nickname of "mePhone" was borrowed from Stu.

That was impressive. My crackberry is a piece. I don't recommend it. And all of the advice I got was to say "yes" to the i-phone. Apps, ya know.

Ask any question you like about the iPhone. I can answer them all (mostly). Why can I? It's not merely because I love my phone so much but because we really, truly do speak fluent Apple in our house. And why would we be able to do that? The Husband. I do yoga. He likes Macs. So as his yoga he went and got a job at the Apple store. So we really do know stuff over here. (He does have a "real" job, but he often wishes the real job were the Mac stop.) Questions? I know just where to get the answers.

Crackberry? Are you freaking insane? Why consider such an error?

Dearest Meg, are you offering customer support services whence I purchase one? Aye... sounds as such.

My dad is the only person I know who hates his blackberry. He's a palm kind of guy but work dictates he needs to be a black, er I mean crackberry dude. My sister is the only person I know who has ever returned the I, er I mean mePhone. So in all actually I am absolutely of no help at all and I just wasted 27 seconds of your life!
