Nothing But Disappointment

3 Feb

I wrote a post about how excited I was for Blackberry 10. Well I now have to retract what I said, because after watching their “Global Launch” and reading / watching reviews, I am more than disappointed.<br><br>

RIM hasn’t changed at all! They are the exact same company churning out products for the corporate world and completely ignoring the consumer sector.

Couple the above with launching yet ANOTHER platform that still has little to no developer support or confidence. Novody wants to put their blood sweat and tears into an application for a couple thousand users. They want the potential for millions of users, and Blackberry 10 doesn’t have those numbers.

What RIM fails to understand is that he masses are consumers. Not puffed up corporate types! Do you think that some geriatric executive’s nephew or son is interested in the new device their “work” supplied them with?

I’m sorry, but Research in Motion / Blackberry is dead to me now.

No Frills

I think people are starting to notice just how simple this new blog of mine is. There’s no user registration, no comment section, no links all over the place, just pure content!

I don’t think people understand just how time consuming owning a blog can be when the internet is so heavily populated with spam bots raging war on every part of your web site imaginable.

Fortunately for this blog I don’t really need a comments section or links /ads for a couple of reasons.

  • I don’t have a lot of active commenters
  • The content is generally FYI and not really debateable
  • I own the server, domain name, and hosting company

Really this is a place for me to vent frustrations, offer up helpful information, and talk about things I am passionate about.

I may actually build this teeny tiny blog into something more simply out of boredom but for the time being, I am simply overjoyed to not have 20 spam comments an hour to deal with and the simplicity of this blog makes me happy!
