We don’t know how to be social without our phones!

We can agree to disagree that we have passed the point of having fun without documenting it.

I have noticed many things recently and that’s not only in the teen generation we millennials are guilty of it too. Everywhere we go all heads are down even when a group are sitting/ hanging out together. The only time the heads are up is when someone says let’s take a selfie our a group photo and after inspecting and confirming the picture heads are down again.

The Q10!


IMG_1695I am so happy to ditch the Z10 for the Q10. Compared to the Z10, the Z10 keyboard is GREAT as a virtual touchscreen keyboard, but my personal preference is physical keys.

 Is the BlackBerry Z10 a groundbreaking smartphone? No, but it is a compelling BlackBerry device and runs on a solid new operating system.

I have been using the Z10 for few days and am finding things I really like about the OS and device and a few things I don’t.
