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.

One thing I often get is why I don't have the latest in laptop/computers.

My response is "Show how you will solve this problem on your up-to-date super computer" then point out one of the weird problems I work on for fun.

Of-course they can't since people who do ask such questions are usually the people who know the least about computer.
