My Blackberry is only three years old, but in the cell-phone world that's like Methuselah, and it seems to be dying. Of course, Blackberry as a company seems to be dying too, but that's another topic.
Or it could be that I just need a new battery.
Either way, I have to admit that it's nice to have the battery konk out mid day and leave me disconnected. It's very freeing. Otherwise, I would have already headed to the store to buy an iPhone.
