However you feel about RIM or its products - disclosure, I own a BlackBerry Bold 9900, as well as loads of other devices with Apple and Microsoft logos all over them - I feel it's disingenuous to leave your journalistic ethics at the door and write something so deliberately inflammatory. It shames us all, the folks who pick up pens for a living and string words together. We all end up looking like hacks.
- Folks who define themselves solely by the technology they carry really need to get a life.
- If a client is going to drop you because you carry a certain piece of technology, find another client.
- Technology is not "good" or "bad". Its success depends on how well it aligns to your particular needs. If a BlackBerry continues to meet your needs, then no article in the New York Times can change that. For all its iOS-driven wonder, the iPhone isn't ideal for everyone, either. Different strokes.
