Jerry Seinfeld paints a picture of a BlackBerry user on Letterman
Jerry Seinfeld seems to have an affinity for BlackBerry users out there as he tells a tale of his experience surrounding them. During the the Late Show with David Letterman, Jerry Seinfeld went all out in getting some things off his chest about cell phone users. Sure there are those iPhone owners that really like to rub into the faces of other people by showing off how the screen automatically goes into landscape view when you rotate it, but Jerry doesn't care and prefers orienting his head accordingly to his phone. He saved his most memorable memories for all of those BlackBerry users out – painting a picture of an individual that's stone cold and focused solely on their handset. Disregarding the world around them, BlackBerry users would seemingly have their gaze fixed – going on to say that they're “not really there.” Diving further, Jerry goes on to portray the tried and true form that most BlackBerry users revert back into - “that creepy head down” pose as they quickly acknowledge someone and go back to typing away on the handset. There isn't else much to say about it all, but it sure is funny to see someone make some humorous jokes about cell phones.

Why, because it doesn't consume tons of battery life just to have some flashy transitions through menus?

Exactly. What lack of sense to exerb such a comment. Ignorance. My ignorance just a delta smaller. Blackberry accomplishes. Iphone middles. Nice OS to expand on app capability. The iphone falls very short on bar set by blackberry, and the amount of iphone sales just states misinformation, and uneducated souls making decisions from strategic marketing. Hopefully someday a 4g iphone can accomplish Pandora and web surfing at same time.

Funny, you guys just assume I have an iPhone. I use Android OS, coming from a BB. BB was all business oriented. Yes, its GREAT if you love stocks, and bonds, and financial reports, and make spread sheets, and use outlook and all of that nonsense.
