Blackberry playbook blues

I have two BlackBerry playbooks. It’s such a waste! I hardly ever use them. They are so beautifully made.


I’ve dug them out and am trying to use them again.

I’ve reinstalled the rim operating system. Wow it seems to have been updated. That’s a surprise! For years I longed for an update. BlackBerry stuff used to be fantastic

in the beginning.

But their rim system has been completely superseded by Apple and android.

BlackBerry playbook used to be my midnight friend when I first started blogging here on WordPress. But now WordPress’s ‘new and improved!!!! system doesn’t work on BlackBerry playbook.


I’ve found I can still use the old dashboard system – the old GOOD system that WordPress replaced to make a post at midnight should I feel like it. I have to overcome a few glitches to do it but, SEE! I have posted here from my old playbook.

I’ll even try inserting a photo. If you don’t see it, I couldn’t do it.

Elephant skipping languidly seems to have been updated.
