The Authors Stories
Before we begin in earnest with our 12-step program, we re going to take a few pages to tell you our own stories of BlackBerry use and abuse. We suspect you will probably recognize yourself in many of our stories; in so doing, you may find that this book is the intervention you never knew you needed.
Gary s Story
I have been using my BlackBerry for the least amount of time (compared to Martin and Kevin). I entered the BlackBerry world about four years ago. My training was actually as a member of the clergy I am an ordained Rabbi but my love of technology always seemed to permeate everything I did. I was known for using my personal digital assistant PDA (i.e., handheld computer) at funerals and weddings to help me remember my talking points. (Many services were outside, so the computer helped me avoid using paper that might fly away in the wind.) This worked great until they started adding phones to these PDAs. It wasn t so great when I forgot to turn off my phone ringer, and the Star Wars Theme rang out at graveside one day much to the shocked stares of the grieving.
These days, I teach college courses on line for the University of Phoenix and work with Martin at Made Simple Learning as Partner, Vice President and coauthor of our books. My busy life truly needs organization. One day a few years ago, a brand new BlackBerry Curve 8300 appeared for review on one of the websites I was writing for and it was love at first roll of the trackball!
I came to rely on my BlackBerry Curve for just about everything. I set different tones to remind me to complete various tasks. These tones tell me what appointment is upcoming, who is calling, and even when text messages arrive from my family. My beloved BlackBerry is always ringing (usually with a movie theme or a rock song), and it often rings when and where it shouldn t. I try hard to remember to turn it off when riding my bike, on the golf course, at worship, or in the movies. But sometimes I forget, and it can be truly embarrassing.
The BlackBerry brought push email (see the Appendix A: CrackBerry Terms and Definitions ) to my world. And like all new BlackBerry users, I immediately became hooked on the instant gratification of getting my email wherever I was. Without realizing it, I developed a habit of looking for that little red light that indicates a new message has arrived about at least once a minute or so. I also found myself grabbing my BlackBerry each time the red light went off or the device vibrated even when I was behind the wheel!
