PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Rachel Crosby speaks about her BlackBerry phone the way someone might speak of an embarrassing relative. 'I’m ashamed of it,' said Ms. Crosby, a Los Angeles sales representative who said she had stopped pulling out her BlackBerry at cocktail parties and conferences. In meetings, she says she hides her BlackBerry beneath her iPad for fear clients will see it and judge her." Other products many people own but feel ashamed about: sex toys. So essentially, the BlackBerry is now the equivalent of a vibrator. In all seriousness though - why feel ashamed because of a phone? Are people really that shallow? I'm really getting too old for this stuff.

Funny read. We have iPhones (4S) for work phones and I was always embarrassed to pull it out of my pocket in public. I generally don't want to see myself as an Apple supporter or someone 30 years my senior who use these things. I scored a HTC Desire S, dropped ICS on it and am proud to pull it out of my pocket. Where I live all the iPhone users (the majority of Sphones) look down on everyone else - pricks.
