The Christian side hug is a term for a display of affection in which a person hugs another by putting one arm around their shoulders, rather than both arms around them, thus minimizing the chance of inadvertent sexual contact. (via sleevia)
Since winning my BlackBerry, I’ve had mixed emotions about this so-called ‘super phone’. It’s been really great in some ways, and very underwhelming in others. For anyone thinking of getting one, here’s the pro’s and con’s (in my books, anyways):
*Great event-calendar integration via Facebook, outlook and Gmail
*Instant notification of emails and social networks (can be terrible if you like procrastinating)
*Free data! And free messaging to other BB users - phone bill significantly decreased
*Great contact-Facebook friend linking
*Twitter for BB is THE best! Seriously! I don’t think a better app could’ve been designed!
*App World and being able to download thousands of free, useful apps
*Tumblr BB app, which I’m using now to write this post
*Email/social network notifications can become a pain sometimes!
*The default web browser is SHOCKING and gives issues with a majority of websites
*Whoever made the BB Facebook app was not thinking clearly, as many important functions are missing
*You cannot truly turn this phone off without removing the battery. You also cannot restart it without taking out the battery!
*OS6 is very buggy and has given me many issues; has required reinstallation occasionally
*Battery barely lasts half a day with moderate use
*BBM can be rather annoying!
Overall, I’m still not sure if I really like this phone, but am still very grateful for winning it :) guess time will tell if my BB and I will get along in the long run.
Look! :) I’m on the FNB website cause of the BB Torch I won!
"FNB.Mobi began its Spot the Dot Competition on 3rd December 2010. Amongst the hundreds of entrants lucky Despina Zoras, pictured below, was the first winner of a BlackBerry Torch.
Despina could not believe her luck and said “this is wonderful” and it was all that she had hoped for. She had dropped her phone in water a while ago and was using a “make-do” phone. Despina says she found the FNB.Mobi site “awesome and easy to use.” When asked if here was anything she could recommend to improve the site Despina responded saying “no, it’s just great”.
FNB.Mobi has another BlackBerry Torch to give away so keep hunting. The next draw is on the 3rd January 2011 and you could be the lucky one.”
