< 29?
weekend @ Bernie's >

[Comments] (2) gadgets and gizmos: I joined the 21st century today, by upgrading to a free Blackberry and linking my work email to the account. I'm rather weary of how to use it, but I think it will be nice to have. People keep asking me if I'm excited to be "chained" to my email. Actually, I am.

Picture it: a client calls me Friday night promising to send me work that must be done over the weekend. Not knowing when it's coming, and wanting to get it done early and not work on Sunday, I stay home all weekend pacing my laptop waiting.

No more. Now I can do what I want, where I want, knowing that, when the file comes, my handy dandy Blackberry will alert me to go home and work on the file. Bliss!

I got a Pearl flip, which is a pain not having a full keyboard, I've already decided, but I'm still happier to have it for it's small size. I can't picture myself wearing one of those holster things. I'm not that hip-py. But thinking about it always reminds me of that scene in "Hook" when Robin Williams 'draws' his brick cell phone against a coworker, in sort of a nod to the John Wayne days of yore. Yeah, that's so not me.

Now you can text -- right?

We still don't have a texting plan, but he does get email on his phone.
