BB Chatting: Yahoo, BBM, Google Talk, AIM.


Before I start this review off, I have to say this – I hate chatting.
I’m not quite sure why. I am very social in real life, and then my internet personality is completely anti-social and creepy; it’s kind of backwards.  But, you know.

So let’s get this party started! All of these chit chat chatty tats come standard on your BB, so it’s not like you have a choice here.

BBM: A lot of people like bbm.  It’s free.  It makes BB users feel interconnected. It’s also awkward.  People know when you’ve read their messages, and they know when you’ve chosen to ignore them.  Has anyone else gotten into trouble for not responding quickly enough/at all? This one has.
It also gives your friends the impression that you’re 24/7 accessible. I’m pretty sure no one has ever bbm’d me to say anything meaningful, it’s mostly “hey” – let me give you a hypothetical conversation:
“hey”
– (I usually wait 5 minutes for further info, it never comes). “hey, what’s up?”
“nothing. you?”
– (ugh) (insert some excuse) “hey, i’m actually not doing a damn thing in class, can i talk to you later?”
End.

Go Daddy BB app, buying overpriced .coms and managing non-bid auctions has never been easier!

Am I the only one who is absolutely boggled by the choice of “Go Daddy” for a domain name? It sounds a bit like a sugar daddy/sugar baby website or a old man/young girl porn site. I don’t know.

Google Maps


Google's Map App

Google Maps, where to begin?

PROS:
It can find “your” location, which is pretty nice considering sometimes I pop up out of the metro & haven’t the slightest idea as to where I am (yes, I live in DC where, yes the streets are letters and numbers – still. Sometimes you’re trying to navigate back to the metro from the club, and your alphabet gets all jacked up).
You can choose methods of transportation (Walking, Public, Car..). It looks a little like this:

Google’s Gmail App


BB's Gmail App

If you’re like me you have about 5,000 different gmail sns- I’m not into syncing my emails directly to my BB, for a number of reasons (I hate the constant buzzing, I can’t tell any of the email addresses apart easily enough, etc.). But I love Google’s Gmail app.
