We have been amazed at the differences between these two very similar communication devices.
For example, with the Blackberry, CapableDad feels like he must always be in touch. People can reach him anytime, day or night and even on the weekends. To him, the Blackberry is like a ball and chain.
With the iPhone, on the other hand, I feel like I can always be in touch. I don’t have to worry about missing a message anytime, day or night and even on the weekends. To me, the iPhone gives me great freedom.
With the Blackberry, CapableDad dreads its ringing to alert him of a phone call or the buzz of another e-mail. He feels like he has to respond immediately.
On the other hand, with the iPhone, I love the ringing to alert me of a phone call or the buzz of another e-mail. I love the fact I can respond immediately.
When we are on a trip, CapableDad can never escape knowing what is going on back at the office because of his Blackberry. He is aware of all of the latest news.
With the iPhone, when we are on a trip, I don’t ever have to wonder what is going on back home with my friends and family. I’m always aware of all of the latest news.
So, clearly, it’s plain to see that the iPhone is FAR superior to the Blackberry.
What do you think? Do you have either an iPhone or a Blackberry? Which one do you prefer? Or maybe I should ask: Are you more like CapableDad or more like me?
