I just realized that lately I’ve been the slave of technology, precisely the 24 hours mobile notification a.k.a. mobile phone.
It started when my company suddenly decided to give me another tools, so they can contact me anytime or at least I can reply to their question immediately, by knowing of my habit of answering the mail or sms.
I was surprised when they gave me a blackberry. I have used it before, in 2005, when everyone was still with Nokia communicator. The blackberry that I used was the first blackberry, the ugly and wide one.
Same as today, my 1st blackberry also a “gift” from my company to keep in touch with me, so I can answer or give my decision immediately.
Therefore, having a new blackberry – where it’s under company’s name – again for me is not like am having a bulk of money, instead I felt like am become a “prisoner” again.
There’s no reason for me to say that the network was bad or am still on my way to the office, or I don’t have the chance to open the mail or forgot to bring my data card.
Start on that date all the impossible becomes possible and start on that day also, I have to manage all of my 3 (three) cell phone besides my schedule and my team.
So I made a list of the pro and cons. Here’s the list of pro and cons of having 3 (three) cell phone :
I can say that am in the middle of having conversation at the other phone
I can do different things with the phone, since all of the three cell phone have different features.
I can read all my mail, my RSS, plurking, chatting, anytime.
I have different game in each of my cell phone.
I don’t have to bring extra battery for my cell phone.
No time for relaxing, every time I heard “You’ve got message” or “the tone of incoming mail from my BB”
No time for excuses that I haven’t read my mail.
No time for run away by saying that the connection was bad at home
I have to be ready when they need me.
I have to remember to charge all of my three cell phone.
Well, having a blackberry for just a life style maybe fun, but having a blackberry because of the company’s demand, is different thing.
But if I have to choose, after having the 2nd blackberry, I have to admit that it’s nice to have a gadget like that nowadays. Like world is in your hand.
