In case you haven't noticed, I revamped the blog a little. I hated the totally generic template of it all, with no customizations of my own to make it unique. I was lazy and busy with work, applications, friends, life, etc. But I've been in a different mood this past week, and I've already changed many things in my life to keep things fresh.

I spent a good half day revitalizing little things here and there on the site. It's been quite a while since I've dabbled in coding, so I was a bit rusty. The tweaks are still being made as we speak, but this is a good start.

Another "upgrade" that I'm uber excited about is my cell phone! I've had the same old Blackberry Curve 8310 for the past TWO YEARS, and if you know anything about me, it'd be that my phone is so wrecked. I've dropped it hundreds of times - and it definitely shows. The paint's chipped, the corners have fallen off, it's just a dead little, but loyal, companion of mine. I made a spontaneous decision one fateful night to get the...


Blackberry Torch!

And I love it! I was afraid I wasn't going to like the new sliding design, but it's definitely a must-have for me, since I have uncoordinated/fat fingers that cannot use a touch screen keyboard. Besides the fact that everything's been upgraded and sleeked out, the best features of the phone are the new web browser, the social networking apps, and the games!

The old web browser on my Curve would often freeze before loading a page and the layout was like reading a boring and deformed newspaper. Contrast that with the new web browser that actually looks like the webpage while also allowing zoom in and out capabilities - LOVE. Next, the social networking apps have made keeping in touch with everyone while I'm on the go so much more effortless. I have access to gmail, google talk, twitter, facebook, and much more right through my phone. And last but not least, this may be silly, but I love their games! The Curve only had one lame game (lame only because my lack of coordination would not allow me past a certain level), but it now has multiple, including a word game (which are my fave!).

I think this phone is a great competitor of the new Android and iPhone 4, and I would not trade it for anything! On the -5 to 5 scale, I would give this phone a +5 rating!

  1. I'm jealous you jerk, I'm still sportin the old blackberry. The touch ball barely even works anymore. I'm sure Sprint will get the Torch in 5-10 years so I'll have to hold out until then.
