The Imminent Death of The BlackBerry

Simple minds are amused by simple things.

Umm.. aren't these all basically the same device?

While I always understood the appeal of having a smart phone, I never understood the appeal of having a BlackBerry when smarter smartphones exist. While I totally understood why RIM's BlackBerry devices got so popular, I never quite got why RIM's BlackBerry devices stayed so popular for so long. It should come as no surprise that the most overrated things are enjoyed by the most underwhelming people. Yet, now that RIM's demise is imminent, I can't help but be genuinely surprised that anyone is actually surprised that RIM is about to die.

No, really; you didn't see that coming?

This is what we would look like to an advanced extra-terrestrial civilization.

You may have looked around yourself lately and thought how magnificent it is to be alive during the time that you are, especially with all of our technological advancements. And yet, if there exists a civilization advanced enough to cross the galaxy to meet us, all of this would be worthless. Why? Because we are still quite a primitive species and I'm about to tell you how.
