A week ago my old cell phone, Blackberry 7100 died. It would no longer boot. Although I was interested in the iPhone and Android the biggest features I use other than the phone features are the email and web browsing. After using the 7100 for several years the feature I yearned for than anything else was a full keyboard. It is really painful to reply to email and surf the web without a full keyboard. The keyboard issue dropped the iPhone out of the mix. Of the phones with a full keyboard, the Blackberry 8900 was the safer choice for a Blackberry user. Due to contract complications that the store could not resolve, I had to order my phone directly from T-Mobile. So I put my SIM chip in an old Nokia I had forgotten to recycle and ran as a regular cell phone for a week. Last Friday I finally received the phone and synchronized it with Outlook. That was good timing since I had to make an unscheduled out of town trip on Saturday. My father died. He had been in the hospital for over a year battling MRSA. He won that battle with MRSA but he lost the war. This week the rest of his organs started failing. By the time I got on the road the diagnosis was that he would not see another sun rise. The hospital had given him a sedative to make him more comfortable. He died before I got there. When I got to my parents house my nephew was still trying to hack into my momâ€™s wireless router. She had recently gotten broadband access and did not remember anyone giving her the passphrase. I quickly read my email to make sure that nothing bad was happening and then got back to the real meaning of the trip.
