Goodbye BB

Dear Blackberry,

I know we’ve been through a lot together but I am going to let the younger sister frolic with your ease of use and accessibility to the online world. I already have my Lenovo LePad in case I actually want to try out some apps again in the future, although I must say that my technical pursuits have shifted massively in light of recent events.

I am giving you over to someone young and able to use you as much as I have. I will miss BBM but nothing can change my mind at this point. Facebook is dead. Twitter is inactive. You, Blackberry, are now part of a segment of digital memories I have to do away with this year. My digital overhaul has began, and it cannot continue without expunging the old to give way to the new.

Thank you for almost two years. Push email may get more difficult now that I do not have everything in a single inbox, but for now, I think I can live with it.

All these years, I was lazily plugging away at digital conveniences. Sadly, it was at the expense of my own security and peace of mind. A paradigm shift has occurred and I don’t look at things in the same way again. The old ways have since then stopped working, and I need to face my demons if I want to make it in one piece.

Of course, you will not understand that gibberish. But thanks so much, BlackBerry. I had a happy experience with you 90% of the time. It’s time to let go and go back to the less invasive basics.
