First Entry With Blackberry

This is the first entry to this travelogue with a Verizon Blackberry. It was my feeling that being able to access the internet in 100+ countries to blog would make my life easier.

I suppose this is the grand impetus for gadgets.

But as I sit here on the lee side of a day where I spent 8 hours trying to download a desktop manager program onto an Asus Eee PC with not enough hard drive space, I begin to question my balk at wisdom.

I am now finger typing directly into the Blackberry. Click ….click…search for a letter …. Click….wrong letter…backspack…click.

A slow process, to be sure. A funny feeling is telling me that my steps forward may not have gotten me too far ahead. But to this feeling I bite my thumb.

Vagabond Journey is entering the modern age, one letter click at a time.

Now I must try not to consider how much effort it took to acquire this pass card into modernity – or the money it cost to get here.

If I could get the program that came with the device onto the Asus, I should be able to upload files directly from the computer to the Blackberry – if I could do this somehow, my finger typing days will meet their end.

Another attempt at uploading just failed. Going to try again into the night.

My thumbs hurt.
