The New York Knicks Playoff Hopes Out of Bounds
The New York Knicks were done in by the Chicago Bulls last night and now they are only one game ahead of the Bucks. NBA Basketball is back and bigger than ever. They are in the conversation and could be the headlines behind the news. If the NY Knicks don’t win tonight they could be in jeopardy of making the playoffs. Why? Because the Milwaukee Bucks would have the tie-breaker over the New York Knicks. Things are getting really interesting in the Eastern Conference. Just a few weeks ago the Boston Celtics were left for dead, Rondo was on the trading block and the team was ready for an implosion, but they have been resurrected and they are hanging in there. They just beat the Miami Heat last night. Seems to me if the Heat don’t like their coach they’re not going to pull a Dwight Howard, they just let the other teams beat them. Is life a beach or is life a South Beach? What are your thoughts? Respond, please.
The Blackberry Dilema
Last week Blackberry’s parent company Research In Motion (RIM) stopped the motion by announcing that Blackberry phones had not been doing very well among consumers. Sales were sluggish and fell below their expectations. As a result they are going to focus on the business customers rather than consumers.
If you can recall- that was their original purpose. Whether you loved or hated Steve Jobs, he never allowed Apple to get away from its original purpose. They started out marketing to a particular demographics and they have not changed. They kept their product at a level where you would have to come to their level. I think Blackberry went wrong when they started marketing to consumers but not putting the services that consumers wanted.
Upgrade Me Blackberry
I had a Blackberry Curve and now I have a Blackberry Bold. It will soon be time for me to get an upgrade. Still I can’t watch some videos because the Blackberry does not use Adobe flash player. It still will not open certain word document files. So, why should I get another Blackberry?
The Future of Blackberry
I like the Blackberry except for those two drawbacks. I like the fact that I can edit my Word documents, Power Point, write my blogs, and post my tweets with ease. If you use Blackberry, please feel free to comment, tweet, or share if you like this blog.
