Guido’s Blackberry is dead. They can’t deliver a new one until Monday. The spare phone in the bottom of the drawer just makes and receives calls and you can text (by pressing keys four times to get the right character). It doesn’t even have a camera.
No Twitter, no Facebook, no Bloomberg, no Reuters, no live securities prices, no mobile trading, no MMS texts, no email, no real-time feed update, it all just seems very quiet. The information tsunami has evaporated. Guido is in a virtual limbo. For a news junkie this is terrifying.
UPDATE : Gaby Hinsliff has similar issues.
