I woke up at 4:37 am then instinctively reached for my blackberry curve to see who had left me a message while I was sleeping. The messages where several so ignoring them for a brief moment I glanced through my contact updates only to see several people had changed their display...
I've been seeing a lot of twitter rants around and I knew it was just a matter of time before I wrote mine up. First of all, my definition of a rant is "to speak violently, and sometimes incoherently on a matter" so keep that in mind as you read...
