Apples, Blackberries and the Fact That They are not Just Fruits Nowadays

I am a proud iPhone owner for quite sometime now. I love how friendly this phone really is especially for people like me who's mantra is "life is too short to read the user manual". I love how useful the Apps are (albeit, you have to buy most of them)-- I find it cute to think that when one tries to hold the apps (for you to either delete or move them) the apps actually talk among each other (while shaking) "naku, sinu na kayang isusunod idelete sa tin?" or "nakuuu, ayokong matabi sa kanyaaaaaa.waaaaah"; I love how sensitive the touch screen is. I would no longer elaborate on its resolution and the camera plus the sleek design. iPhone IS iPhone.

Then there's Blackberry. The phone when years ago, only the corporate folks could appreciate and could stand its boring visage. But now, especially now that it's 13th month pay season, you find almost every minute, people updating their FB status of their BBM pin.

So now I own both. My friends have switched to using BB instead of Nokia or SE or Samsung. iPhone is quite pricey and since there are also apps in Android market which can also be used for iPhone, the world is eternally connected. Hindi naman ako papahuli. So I bought the cheapest BB.

But there goes the nightmare of getting used to it. Before I was able to have my BBM and other apps work, it took me 7 restoration of the old settings, contacting Globe almost every 3 minutes and updating the installer everynow and then. I am not sure if other BB users went through the same thing but that was a week of setting it up and getting the hang of it.

As for iPhone, I did not go through the same Dark Age as I was a previous iPod user. I got used to the synching thing. But I still imagine how would it look like had I not been an Apple user before.

These are my first world pains.
These things I rant about are mundane but at the same time so complex that it reminds me how simple and peaceful my life was with Nokia 3310 and 3100.

This whole technology thing has taken its toll on me.
But hell no, I'm not complaining.

But don't you think sometimes, you wish Apples and Blackberries were simply just fruits and just mere fruits?
