Wad City: ‘Why I Miss the Blinking Red Light’

Dissent of the day, from “Wad City”:

I still miss that blinking red light. I remarked as such to a colleague earlier today, when it took me a half-hour to realize I’d missed his call because I’d stepped out of my office for a few minutes. This would never have happened with my BlackBerry, because the minute I’d have sat back down at my desk, the light would blink and I’d know to check it.

Even if we concede that it’s a good feature, though, is it really one of the top three reasons to use a BlackBerry today?
