    Since becoming a director in the company it was decided that I need to be more accessible to the clients and I proceeded to pick out the Blackberry Curve 8300 handset. I put this together with a North America phone plan and a 6gb data plan for about $130 per month. What we all forgot…

    Huge hassle when clearing customs despite the fact that I have made this trip at least 10 times over the last year and similar trips more than 50 times over the last 3-4 years. To add to the fun, snow in Boston closed the airport and we had to make a pit stop in Syracuse,…
