Messes me up when I cut mine. Feels all funny... Slows me down for about half a day every time...
My 2 cents.

Use of the back button while navigating on a BB can cause odd results...

Heh. This thread reminds me of that line from Fight Club:

"Fight Club became the reason to cut your hair short."

Blackberry is the reason to cut your nails short.

it is kind of a funny thread, but at the same time, it does have some validity. for one, i give some of the guys out there an excuse to cut their nails on a normal bases...lol jk. but serisouly, it really does help a lot. and, i figured some people might appreciate the info.
