Another year older. . .

. . .and still a kid at heart.

After an extremely busy week in Chicago, training for my new position as Academic Director, I'm sipping coffee and having a lazy birthday morning with a snoring kitty at my side.

Life is good.

So, I signed up with T-Mobile. Now I'm trying to figure out how to use my new BlackBerry Pearl. 

Who writes these user manuals? I think someone should hire me to write them because I know how to explain things much better! Most user manuals are an exercise in frustration. Of course, I know most people don't bother reading manuals, but that only works when gadgets are logically designed. 

After visiting numerous user forums, it appears that most fully-loaded devices are neither logically designed nor intuitive to use.
