Is Blackberry a 5 blade razor?

I’ve had a regular two blade wet shave razor for as long as I can remember, but recently it’s been really difficult to get blades for it. Why? I have no idea. I was in the supermarket a few days ago and was looking again for the elusive blades when I spotted a good deal on a five blade razor. Five blades? I want to shave, not decapitate myself and then trim my hair! Anyway, for £3 it seemed a bargain so I bought it and brought it home. It’s an amazing device. It works smoothly, delivers a good shave and does the job, but so did my old two blade razor, so I’m still mystified why I now need five. This week has also seen massive turmoil for the poor users of Blackberry – no email, systems shutting down and now it’s spread to America. It’s a disaster for the company that has been keeping Apple and the iPhone at bay. HTC and the other android makers must think this is the best news ever. In truth though aren’t our phones a bit like the five blade razor?
