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.
There’s been a lot of excitement over the recent iOS 5 announcements. A new notifications center, a promising new Reminder app and Wifi Sync are just a few of the awesome features that we can look forward to this fall.
One feature that I’ve been getting a lot of questions about is iMessage. What is it? Will there be two messaging apps now or will it be integrated into the current messaging system? If you’re wondering about the answers to these questions, read on.
