Blackberry everywhere

Since I have done some travel lately, I have oppertunity to see people in the airport or airplane. It seems to me Blackberry is everywhere. I remember Blackberry was popular a few years ago (also from airport impression), now it’s pervasive / everywhere. There are lots of coverage on Blackberry recently such as: 1) Obama does not want to give up his Blackberry; 2) The Blackberry Storm, first touch screen blackberry launched by Verizon wireless, although sold about 500,000 units in its first month, received mixed review from consumers (the bugs). Of course, I noticed people checking on emails and looked like they are VIPs, which reminded me the default signiture line of Blackberry email: sent from my wireless device. Interestingly, iPhone copied this idea and has this “sent from my iphone” line.

But I see one problem in the Blackberry revolution. Last week my Blackberry browser stopped working. I did some online search and found that Blackberry has 4 browsers (source: crackberry). Isn’t this insane?

One thing Yahoo Mail beats GMail
I have been using GMail for quite some time (since 2004), but I have not switched to GMail yet. GMail has some nice features such as group email threads, and integration with Google talk. But I found one more feature I liked about Yahoo Mail lately: the full header feature. It tells me all the information about sender, the path, etc. This feature alone helped me solve a mystery of return path (address) lately. So go Yahoo !!!
