It's a blackberry that I got during the Big Sale when they were discounted by $300. It's cute and, frankly, I will be taking a lot of kitty videos and posting them to YouTube. How useful! it will also be good to have puzzles, etc., and TV shows to watch on the train to the Holy City at Xmas.
Now, is it a good thing that I can carry my email around with me all the time? Probably not, but this apparently is how "we" live now. So there you have it.
Next up, a "smart" phone. Or if not a "smart" phone, at least one that looks recent and is not embarrassing to whip out in a public place.
