    BlackBerry Capital

    Advertisement



    Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, is a political town, chock-full of BlackBerry addicts. Overall, the city shares with Washington, D.C., a kind of frantic machismo about using the device. Prime Minister Stephen Harper does not use a BlackBerry, but his staffers and most other politicians on Parliament Hill are dependent. All members of Parliament (MPs) and their staffs are given four BlackBerrys by the office of the Speaker of the House.

    Former Liberal MP and financial author Garth Turner is a self-confessed connection junkie, who sleeps with his BlackBerry next to his bed. Turner particularly hates long flights when his precious device no longer works. "Travelling is hard enough," he says, "but travelling without your BlackBerry vibrating reassuringly on your hip is absolute digital hell."

    Digital hell is his opinion but as all us pinstackers know with out those alerts and vibrations SOMETHING IS UP with our BB's lol, they're our lifeline and a day wouldn't be a day without a blackberry and I'm sure many would agree. "Even those who recently switched to iphone and android which now miss they're BB's"

    it's not even the needing to be receiving messages or calls.. but having it on you so that panic feeling doesn't arise from not having it. I've turned around and driven home because I realized I left it on my bed charging even though it meant I was going to be late.

    I mean I had my sword, but I knew the day would be unbearable without my berry. My boss ended up understanding. I bribed him with some new ringtones. WATAA!
