Secretly Clearly Canadian


I type this on a BlackBerry in part out of a sense of national pride as Research in Motion (RIM) now BlackBerry Ltd is a Waterloo, Ontario-based corporation (the jokes just write themselves). This phone is one of the last that BlackBerry produced as opposed to licensed.

‎The construction of this phone is unrivaled, its functionality unencumbered, and the keyboard plus touchscreen keeps me human. When I write in French, it switches — accents and all — automatically. It works so well that I forget having it is a thing until someone says, “Wait… what is that!?”
