    Hi everyone. I've started a blog to talk about my switch from iOS to Blackberry and the things that come up and happen. Thought some of you might like reading it.

    Here is the site address, two postings so far. I forgot till now to tell anyone:

    Hope some of you like it.

    I agree, especially with the CEO news. Things will get wild around here.

    Definitely add some pictures and some videos to make your arguments clearer (compare and contrast videos).

    I've updated my theme in wordpress. Now the main page gives a brief paragraph and you click in to read the rest, it's a cleaner main page now and it keeps me from having more navigation later.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi all, New post up to the blog. In this one I've included 2 videos as examples. I posted the videos to youtube so I could embed them and I also posted them to dropbox so they are easily downloadable. Any suggestions? could the video have been handled better. I'm using a free wordpress account right now so they won't let me upload video.

    Thanks for reading and for offering and suggestions . I really appreciate it.

    Great read. Keep it up and it will be promoted. I see your point about HD but my 9850 does 720P. But I like that your staying true to the qwerty ... Could be some touch screen die hards out there.

    Surprised the haters haven't set up camp yet. Just stay focused on what BB does well and the facts w/o slinging mud (which they will). The CB community will jump in for support I'm certain.

    Why too many Blackberry haters on Crackberry.com? I don't understand. Enjoy your devices and let live!

    @nogod. I think it comes down to the community. People that have switched to iOS or Android keep coming back here cause they are comfortable on this forum. Then as time passes they can't help but start troll posting. I think there is something in human nature that makes some people feel defensive about their product purchases, its like they feel threatened if their choice isn't perceived by everyone as the best. Sad really

    But. On topic. That's for all the positive words everyone. Writing this blog is proving to be very fun and enlightening as well. Hope you all keep reading. Thanks.

    I was just reading up on your blog. Great job! It's quite interesting and refreshing to read about BB (or any type of phone, really) that uses examples from personal experience and that refrains from bashing any other platform.

    I quite enjoyed it and will be checking in later for more!
