What’s So Smart About Smartphones?

October 30, 2012 Leave a comment

With the iPhone 4S’s and the iPhone 5’s Siri, it’s quite possible that the smartphone will soon usurp man’s long-standing best friend, the dog. A pooch jumps to life the moment you return home, barks at threatening strangers, and fetches your morning paper.

Yahoo! Is No Longer Black

Yahoo! is one big company. It has a search engine, a mailing domain, and a news site to name a few. Covering a large scope of the internet worldwide, they needed to hire as many as 12,000 employees (who have all sold their smart phones at some time) as of May this year. Working for a notable company does have perks and benefits. You may have allowances, compensations, and leaves. But, Yahoo! takes it to another level. They don’t just provide government-mandated benefits but they also share more than what is expected from them, considering their company sets standards. So, if they say that they only get standard phones, they mean it without the BlackBerry.

Yahoo!’s president and CEO Marissa Mayer has announced that employees can choose any smartphone they want but not BlackBerry phones.

That’s a cool way being a Yahoo! employee. They will be willing to do it but only if it’s not a BlackBerry phone. This move made by Mayer has become quite an insult for RIM. It shows that RIM’s BlackBerrys have been blurred out of the smartphone industry. It is also apparent that BlackBerry phones have been not “not-so-cool” smartphones for quite some time now.
