    I am a pretty geeky guy. I own 4 laptops (including 1 linux) and have a home network worthy of a Fortune 500 company. But I never saw the beauty of the smart phone / PDA world. I have always bought really basic cell phones and I have kept them for years. My wife said that my old cell was an embarassment. On Valentine's Day she bought me a Sprint 8130 Pearl with an unlimited data plan. In only a few days my entire world has changed. It is really amazing how quickly this little device has become central to my very existence.

    I'm also a new BB user and I run Linux exclusively. (2 laptops, 3 desktops.) Be sure to check out Barry. (Its over at Sourceforge, too new to post links)

    I haven't messed with its syncing ability at all but the bcharge binary is a good way to charge your blackberry from your linux box.
