As someone with a title like Chief Innovation Officer, I probably should have been one of the first smart phone adopters. Truth be told, I didn’t jump on that bandwagon until an investor looked at my phone during a board meeting and teased me for having an “old man phone”. In my defense, I was actually an early adopter, but I got burned by the earliest Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) from Sharp. Does anyone remember the Sharp Wizard?

I can remember back when Palm and Blackberry were duking it out for the top position, and now look where Palm is. I used to have one of those silly Palm Pixies, until Peter, my CEO, finally made me switch to the iPhone – and honestly, I haven’t looked back once. And if the June 30th installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker by NetBase is any indication, Blackberry will likely [...]Read more
