The Blackberry: A Septuagenarian’s Review

The following is a review written by a 74-year-old Blackberry user who is quite convinced that her smart phone is the greatest, for reasons that are both practical and heartwarming.

Hello, dears. My name is Mrs. Katherine Andersson; but my friends call me Kathy. I have just turned 74 on my last birthday and I feel great about that. I am writing this review of The Blackberry because I heard on the news that the makers of my phone, whose company is called Research in Motion (RIM), are in serious financial trouble, and I guess I want to help them convince people that their product is very good. I also learned that they are from Canada, and I have many Canadian friends whom I play canasta with, and I know they are good people.
