The Blackberry Lunch


I have found it to be the funniest thing, and it has happened to us a few times as well. There have been a few times when we have gone out to lunch or dinner, one person gets a BBM (Blackberry Message), then another person gets one, then the next. We spend the next 10 minutes bbming the person we are talking to in complete silence, and even sometimes we might be bbming in a group and even the people sitting together at the dining table are involved in the BBM group chat. This is damn addicting and you can notice others who are addicted to it. The one time Zains’ blackberry service went down, I was really really annoyed that I had to use sms to communicate with people, it felt so archaic and slow in comparison with BBM which gives you answer right away, and it so damn satisfying. I even get annoyed with those that don’t answer right away or are too slow to type. I think that BBM is an excellent feature, but sometimes you just have to put it down and enjoy what ever you are doing.

  3. It is extremely rude though, when you ignore the people you are sitting with to use your BBM instead.

    some ppl act smart tho and read the bbm from the messages so that its still unread…which ruins the whole point of the bbm

    my bro just got one and he’s not even working! I told him the no. 1 reason ppl are getting this is cz of the msging service. It’s for business use, though I doubt most are using it for that.

    From a business point of view, it’s much cheaper to use BB over Internet enabled mobiles, I read it in a study somewhere, application, emails, browsing, but the gap is closing really fast lots of smart phones are out now

  11. I never understood the BlackBerry unless it’s for work use. They are just too bulky, and the OS is not even that great. To each his own I guess.
