DopeMomsTech… Blackberry Torch 9810 versus Nokia Lumia 900

I write to you from Soma Sushi…. do not judge me!

Torch 9810 versus Nokia 900… put through the social media whore maven test that is known as a day in the social media life of @Efabulous1.

Although I am totally biased to Blackberry, Nokia is kicking ass and taking names. So let me elaborate. It’s Huge! No the screen silly… Dirty. That screen on the Nokia is amazingly clear and huge. I love surfing the net on it. Though I think Microsoft’s decision to force Bing on me is a real tech communist move. Helllllllllllo…. Google. I want Google search on my Windows phone. Yes, it is like having Magic Mike … but wanting to spoon. Mommy joke…1 and 2nd Magic Mike reference in 24 hrs. Lol. I digress. Nokia flogged the Torch on the browser, but if I cannot get Google or the search engine of my choice … one sneaky point back to RIM.

Torch has SocialScope which is still one of the best combo facebook / twitter clients for BB ever. The fact that you can combine up to two Twitter streams, your FB feed, post to any and all FB pages and check in on Foursquare ( when it works…. because it never damn works for me… and I could be planting roses right under a cancerous cell tower… no worky, fix that SocialScope!!!!!).  Anyway, SocialScope kicking ass taking names… plus Hootsuite is in BB… and in my book,that is the only other app to touch the Scope.

Nokia has Seesmic and TweetCaster…. but they suck on the wp7 platform. They are mediocre and you cannot move through trends and hashtags like a leopard… more like an alley cat with ticks. 

Now Nokia has Twitter, but I cannot randomly search these insane hashtags my friends come up with… and though it is not a business priority, it improves my quality of like tremendously… for heavens sake, I am divorcing I need to laugh people.  I want my hashtags at my feet. BB has this covered, right from anywhere…. very impressed with the Twitter integration. Nokia… you must do better or some raging and overzealous WP7-head has to school me… because the 900 has no moxie in this area.

Switching through apps… Point to Nokia. It is incredibly easy and BB takes another Flogging. Now the Nokia can be pretty annoying because to clear your open apps, I find myself hitting the back button like a 4 year old. … And yes, she hits the back button faster than me… shut up, I am 39 and just got off coffee. Judgemental, you… yes. Stop. Lol.

Everything SkyDrive … point to Nokia. BB definitely competes, as I used my SkyDrive first on my Torch, but it looks better on a Windows Phone… hands down.

Important stuff…Calendar on Nokia sucks. Making recurring items, sucks even more…. triple sec points to Torch 9810. Windows need to really step their game up…. business peopke and moms need dates, make appointments, do future planning… if I cannot program playdate for moms on every 3rd Saturday on a whim… problem.

Live tiles rock, team Nokia.

… so now that the hit sake has kicked in… Business of Social Media Guru…. Blackberry Torch 9810 reigns supreme. Personal toy of an entrepreneur dabbling in social media…. Nokia.

I will keep both phones and pray that BB10 comes out before my 40th birthday.

That is all.

Why I stopped checking in?

They say it takes 30 days to form a habit.

My old habit was Foursquare.  I love the concept. I liked the idea of checking in and getting a deal. However, I found myself more and more checking in, no deal … just my commentary. Not too bad – social media whore that I am … I was totally okay with that. Queue narcissistic laugh here.

Then one day, a woman checked in to my house and became mayor.

WTH!

I’m the queen of this castle. I’m the head honcho in charge. Some freakish geek who’ve surpassed my own geekdom has been checking into my damn house because it’s on Foursquare and now she’s mayor. So this heifer was checking into my house, more than I was.

CREEPY. SPOOKY AND JUST DOWN RIGHT BAD SOCIAL MEDIA ETIQUETTE.

Was she part of the homeowner’s association? Hello.

Danger Will Robinson, Danger. It was then that I decided, I learned how to check in to Foursquare and now it’s time for me to learn out to drop it like a hot potato. I mean if I’m at a special event like Jesus playing air guitar on stage with the Black Sabbath reunion tour… I’M GOING TO CHECK INTO THAT EVENT, YOU BETCHA’. However, if it’s not that fabulous… you don’t need to know where I am and who’s screwed up my damn latte! You really don’t.

I love you Foursquare, you do have a purpose… but it’s been real.
