Just as there are too many ways to listen to music these days, I think there are too many ways to get in touch with people. Between email, texting, and phone calls, I’m already swamped. Or, at least, I feel swamped, even if I’m not busy answering a myriad of emails and messages. Social networks don’t make it any easier; actually, they add to the problem. I need another way to keep in touch with people about as badly as I need to be shot in the foot with a double-barrelled shotgun.
Enter BBM, or Blackberry Messenger. Another one of the ill-fated company’s “too little, too late” strategies that makes sure Blackberry is still firmly planted in 2007, BBM for iPhone is almost exactly what it says on the label. I went to school in Waterloo and have a number of great friends there, some of who were working at the company when it was still called RIM, so I mean no insult. In fact, I want the company to succeed — a little competition is always a good thing. But the question remains: is BBM relevant in today’s world? Is it better to show up late to a party than to never show up at all? Read on to see my thoughts.
