Remember when everyone was sick and tired of smug iPhone owners? How about when Android took flight and gave rise to the Android Army. Me, I’d probably be called a Windows Phone fanboy and certainly there are quite a few who say nonsensical things in the name of their beloved mobile platform of choice. The thing is I never realized how absolutely pathetic the BlackBerry fanatics make fans of the other platforms look with their blind devotion to the BlackBerry brand and experience. I was perusing the USA Today article “BlackBerry Z10 Greeted With Caution; Stock drops 8%” and boy was there some doozies in there and sums up the madness BlackBerry fanatics believe to their core.

Social worker Jamie Hersh-White checked out the new phones at a BlackBerry Experience event in Chicago, and loves them. "I’m thinking of camping outside my Verizon store just so I can feel the excitement."

Can we tell Jamie it’s a pretty safe bet to sleep in her warm bed. She could go into hibernation and still make it in time to pick up a Z10.

Harvey Gee, 47, was purchasing a BlackBerry Z10 for his wife, who was stuck at work. Gee, who works near the AT&T store but lives in Castro Valley, said his wife was worried there would be "a run on them" and thought she should get one right away.

"She’s a BlackBerry fanatic, so she didn’t even consider an iPhone," say Gee.

Long story short, Mr. Gee’s only competition was himself.

A word of advice to our readers. If you see a BlackBerry fanatic do not bring up the Z10 & the complete irrelevance it has to most of us. That is pretty much the equivalent of teasing a bear with food who hasn’t ate in a very long time.
