PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "RIM has just unveiled the latest iteration of the BlackBerry 10 operating system, set to be released on new devices early next year. We have finally gotten a look at the UI RIM will be shipping, and it's an interesting mix of user interaction metaphors we've seen on multiple devices to this point and a strong progression from the version of the software we first saw back in May." It looks nice. I like it.

I guess you can make all kinds of jokes, but as the extra hand is black you have to be careful not to upset the more political correct among us.

But I found it rather funny the extra hand showed up. It didn't really add anything and its sudden intervention was completely ignored. The voice didn't acknowledge it and the hands didn't seem to mind either. I would slap it.

I wonder why they just didn't reshoot it without the extra hand.

The unpolitically correct are ironically the ones with the most problems with their position so they cry wolf /on behalf/ of minorities to "help" them out.... Or to desensitize others. Either way the strategy is actually pretty disgusting.
I note how race was not mentioned in this post until you came along, mentioned it and warned^H^H^H^H^H^H threatened everyone that the politically correct boogieman would be out to get them.

Oh, I don't care about people making those kind of jokes. My mother is white, my father was black. But I am aware some of the folks here can easily be upset.
