Blackberry is a brand name but other companies such as Samsung, Nokia, Hewlett Package make similar products. This gadget has become very popular especially in develop country with commuters where people often have their long journey in it. While waiting for the arrival, they will spend the time by typing on their miniature keyboards with their thumbs. Apart from all the advantages that this gadget provide us, there is also the bad side. What used to be a quiet, ease journey to work on the commuter is now taken over by the latest problems at work. Before this work starts as we arrived at the office but nowadays with the Blackberry, works come as we turn on the Balckberry. If you feel you can’t get rid of the email because of the importance, you might feel Blackburied.

Oprah’s show to end

PhotobucketThe iconic American talk show host, Oprah Winfrey, is to stop doing her globally famous show in September 2011, after 25 years on the air.

The Oprah Winfrey Show began in 1986 and is now broadcast in 140 countries. With its confessional atmosphere and Ms Winfrey’s candour about her troubled childhood and her weight and relationship problems, it’s redefined the talk show genre.

It’s also made her the wealthiest black woman in the world, and possibly too, the most influential. A Maryland University study suggested her support for Barak Obama had been key to his nomination. Authors appearing on her programme can become bestsellers overnight.

Oprah is still the highest rated talk show on US television but audiences are half what they were a decade ago. Her empire also includes magazines, a radio show and, from next year, a television network, so it seems likely her place in American culture will continue.
