擧者按:殷宇曦,世人尊稱 殷sir,黑龍江省伊春市出生,北京市出身,香港大學環球商業學系2011屆資優生。

高中他這班也淨出這號兒神人了,有帶著小女孩兒探訪北京地下鉄隧道捎帶手兒過把電的,有拿個復讀機跟人家mp3懟著讀英語的,有今兒閙要全脫了就穿一件兒畢業袍兒照相的……

本文是他在 3月11日東日本太平洋沖大地震 後寫下的小品文兒,小詞兒碼就的細膩英文,讓人大呼可直選英美中學國文讀本。無論是摹寫英語作文,還是要評論科技與生活之互動,此文都足成典範。因轉載來與大家同賞同習。(天成)

iPhone vs Blackberry vs Earthquake: Life saver?

After you survived the strongest earthquake in Japanese history, which device could communicate your message faster, iPhone or Blackberry?

It is a relevant question, since the message can be either “I am fine”, or “I need help”. Having a device in your hand that will help you probably can be the ultimate reason for your purchase. Help just once, and it will worth all the sacrifice you made throughout the lifecycle you are using it.

Blackberry has been the most reliable for its exclusive network. It earned the fame after 9/11. And in Egypt, Blackberry is also working after other networks are shut down, or better put, is the last to be shut down. There are messages from Blackberry office that they received praise from clients saying they used Blackberry to find out the situation of their expats in Japan.

iPhone is just too new to make it to 9/11, and the most recent iPhone 4 is being accused of all kinds of reception issues (well, Apple say it’s a feature than a bug). But this article quoted a real case in Japan that it is winning out in the post-earthquake race. And in Haiti, a man used an iPhone App to treat his own wound.

So, who is actually winning out? Probably this will be another winning factor for this race, which iPhone seems to be winning, but now the battle is in Blackberry’s strongest area. Will iPhone make it this time?
