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.

OK so "proud" may not be the best word to use for some. When I said proud I meant "feel good/glad not to be an iPhone user like everyone else". To me it's just a tool for work. My personal phone is an old Nokia N73 so don't get me wrong I'm no hi tech consumer: E.g. My family TV is still an old CRT in the lounge room with a shitty no name STB and a universal remote LOL! My kids don't care, neither do I...
