” … sources familiar with the president’s personal life say Obama remains a faithful Christian while in the White House, practicing his beliefs regularly in private with family and the aid of his BlackBerry.”
At first, I was skeptical about the validity of this news item. Then I realized how many times in a single work day, I look down at my company-provided Blackberry as new emails buzz in and quietly intone “Oh my God. Oh my God.” over and over. So, maybe.
I looked around for religious software for BBs and there are a few, mostly bible verse interpretations and some new age Buying the World A Coke kind of stuff. But then I found this Virtual Rosary Software.
“This program will grab your hand and take you all the way through the mysteries, creeds, and prayers you have to pray with a rosary … Virtual Rosary has a midi player integrated with several songs so you do not get bored while you are praying.”
They were smart to put that last part in there because I was already getting bored just reading about it all. But then I came across a screenshot of one of the prayer pages and saw that it displays a clickable AMEN button.
Now we’re talking! For those folks who spend their days worshiping at the Church of Overused Business Lingo, an AMEN button would be so appropriate. Just click it whenever one of the buzzwords comes up. There is, of course, the danger of contracting Blackberry Thumb by overuse so I don’t recommend that the AMEN option be employed for “low-hanging fruit” or “outside the box thinking“, but “deliverables” and “value proposition” and – Heaven help us all – “ping” … I say AMEN!
How can I get myself just an AMEN button? Because I could really use one.
