I received my Blackberry about a week ago and I must say it is a nice addition to my gadget family. The gadget family consists of an ipod 4g 20gig, Samsung A680 camera/videophone, and the blackberry 7290. Too much shit too lug around! As I said before it is the 7290 model and it functions well as an electronic leash/crack pipe. I get my work email on the fly and I have a Jabra Bluetooth wireless headsets for those akward moments when you cannot use your hands. As a phone it is mediocre but it really shines as pda/email/ and internet device. No Wi-Fi connectivity to speak of, but I hear they are going to implement that into future blackberries. I fully understand why the addicted have labled them "crackberries".
I wish I could figure out a way to get my personal email pushed to my device along with my work email. I can go the internet route and check my email via WAP and xhtml, but that is just too tedious. I want to know when I get email right away and not have to go out to the web to check my email. If anyone has a solution, let me know. I thought about setting up gmail as pop mail so it forwards to our exchange server. But just it wouldn't be a good idea because of security issues. So for now I am delegated to checking my personal email like I always do.
I have been hard at work on my remix/mashup cd which is entitled Darth Nuggets- Hot Barbeque Action Volume 1. I am shooting for about 8 tracks and few tracks push the five minute mark. This is just a fun little project of mine, nothing too serious here. Some tracks worked out together and others didn't, but we will see how the rest of it fares. No tracklist yet but that is coming soon. My favorite track so far is a joint where I laced Jay-Z with Tortoise, yes Tortoise.
