Birthday Contest: Win a Unify4Life BlackBerry Remote!

I think that is prertty self explanatory - why on earth would you not want this? But I'll certainly beg if that will help my chances?

Good luck everyone.

I need one of these to reduce the clutter of remotes in my house! Even the 'universal' ones aren't universal enough.

Man, I am loving these contests. Will love em even more once I finally win one :) This is a pretty cool product, especially for someone who has tons of remotes and often loses em or gets em confused.

Great Product. A friend of mine had it for his old blackberry and boy was I jealous. As a guy that can never find the 4 remotes I have for my AV equip winning this would be a lifesaver. Thanks for the great app. Keep up the good work. Pick me!

I heard about this last year and have been waiting for it to come around. Love the video. My wife has 9 remotes to use to boot up our huge theater system in the house...but with a 9 1/2 ft by 5 1/2 ft tv screen...its worth the wait! However, with Unify4Life...oh how great it would be to control all this power from my BB.

Happy Birthday Crackberry.....who wouldn't want a phone that takes place of 6 remotes....at least that's what I have in my house...lol!!!!

In the landed of cool, this has got to be near the top! Nice job Unify4Life! Keep up the good work and thank you.

This looks amazing. I am stoked to get one of these when they come out. Even if I don't win one I am saving up to buy one. Thanks for running these contests.

very neat app!! this would be great cause my tv remote is complete junk and cant even change channels or volume!

If you can find it in your hearts in all of your Crackberry wisdom, please, please, please send this to me!!!

PS - Happy Birthday!!!

Well I can never seem to find my remote... But sadly my BOLD never seems to leave the palm of my hand... SOOO IF I HAD THIS I WOULD NEVER HAVE TO HUNT FOR MY REMOTE!!

I don't think I'll be giving up my Harmony anytime soon, but this is a great option. Especially when the gaming adapter comes out so I can use this to control my PS3. This will finally make the PS3's browser usable. Can't wait.

I have to say that the articles lately have made me feel like this is stormberry.com rather than crackberry.com... How about a little diversity Kev for those of use that don't own storms but love our crackberries anyways??

This is my entry for the BB remote giveaway. Why would I like to win? Well I won't bother with ass kissing, but rather I just think that would be soooo cool to control my TV, DVD, etc all from the comfort of my chair just by simply using my Blackberry. Thats the ultimate in lazyness and at the same time it would make me uber cool. Thank you for your time!

It's amazing what technology can do these days. I think this would made it even easier for me to be lazy, not to mention consolidating all of my remotes!

i can imagine the looks from our friends when i turn on the TV with my blackberry :D
You see, i really need one of those :)

I believe I saw a blog a couple months ago talking about Unify4Life giving the Storm the ability to open garage doors. That would be incredible, that's why I would love to win this contest!

I was actually thinking of treating myself to one of these for my bday, coming up this Thurs. But if you wanna treat me to one I think I would have to say...hell yeah!

Set alarm...check email...browse internet...bb message someone...add 3 and 4...make an appointment...take a pic...record a memo...call voicemail...THEN CHANGE THE TELEVISION STATION...ALL ON ONE DEVICE???

...I need it!

I would love to win this prize. To be honnest, it would be mostly to impress my friends when they come over. Something they dont have.

Finally a device for us, The American Couch Potatoe, I really think this is a great device, very cool that I can change channels from my phone and not have to round-up 5 remotes to watch TV and a DVD. Great going guys.
Thanks,
Dave

I love to be able to watched my recorded shows i have saved on my home DVR as much driving an work away from home that i do.

The BlackBerry is an awesome device. And why not extend that with such a cool product you've created. I'd like to win one of the giveaways because it would be great to come into a dark house after work and NOT search for the remote controls. Being able to turn my TV, Computer, and other things on and off at the flick of my trackball would be great! Please consider me for one of the prizes!

I would love to get my hands on one of these things. Can you make that happen for a long time, never won anything before user Kevin? CB Rocks!!!!!!!!

PS..
My birthday is Thursday..2/26/82

This would make my life much easier.. I currently have 2 cell phones 3 e-mail accounts and 5 remote controls at home to operate my TV, stereo, DVD, Cable box and i'm asshamed to admit it a VCR (yes i'm still holding on my prize fisher VCR) Anyway.. with htis phone i could combine all into one.. Sound good? then pick me !@

now the wife and son wont have to ask where the remote is...it will ALWAYS be in my hands...muu-haa-hahahhaaaa

I'm a big TV/Music junkie and especially because of my employment with Comcast cable and Slacker radio. I get fantastic free cable and free radio which I stream from my BB Storm to my stereo via a Jabra BT3030 stereo receiver.

Just about everyday, I come home from work and turn on my radio, adjust the volume, and start jammin out the tunes via Slacker radio... but wouldn't it be awesome to turn on my radio and adjust the volume all from my Storm!?!?!? ABSOLUTELY!

Then comes TV time later in the evening and I have to go find my 3 remotes again, switch inputs on the radio, yadah yadah yadah... then finally I've got my Berry in my hands again watching TV. But wait, I've still got this awkward shaped Comcast remote in my hand... I would just love to hold my Berry and set the TV remote down. That way my Berry wouldn't get so jealous and might even perform better for me! :-P

I'd absolutely love to have a Unify4Life AV|Shadow to use everyday! Next on my list after the Unify4Life AV|Shadow is a SlingBox :) :) :)

Thanks Crackberry for showing appreciation to the users of your website! Always giving away free stuff :)

There are many remotes at my house for each of the units...ex TV, DVD, Stereo Receiver, Sat. Remote..etc...However, I can never find the one I need when I need it because the kids or whoever, has put them somewhere out of sight, stuck them between cushions, etc. My Blackberry however, is always right by my side, always available for me for its various applications. Stick the remotes anywhere you like kids...Dad's got his Blackberry I will control the horizontal and the vertical and anything else that needs to be turned on or off by remote...and if necessary, I will Blackberry the garage door and head out for a ride on the Harley...just me and my Blackberry.

OH. MY. GAWD. What is this? I need this so that my spouse stop complaining about the number of remotes that I hoard. Please please pick me to win this and save my marriage!!! :) Much thanks!

I'd like to win this because business never lets me catch all of the shows that i would usually run, and since i run a non-profit organization, i taught maybe this is my time to get something back.

please please please, I'd love to watch some heroes or lost, while on break

I've been waiting for this product to arrive ever since I read about it during Beta testing. Among other things, I design, sell, and install custom audio video systems. Every system gets a PC programmed automated remote control. Quite a few of my clients have Blackberries. I'm looking forward to owning this product and wowing my clients with this "must add on" for their systems. Thanks for the opportunity to win one.

We have a nice home theater fully wired house but what I really need is one total command and control remote to rule them all. So no matter what room I am in I can just use my BlackBerry without worrying where the remote is.

Great product and idea. What is the range of the device? I want the garage door opener but couldn't find a price.

Great Product

I like how this is working! Its your birthday and you are giving us gifts! One more reason why Crackberry is the best website ever!

This is a sweet giveaway. I hope I win one of these babies so I can control everything wit my new BlackBerry Curve 8900

This is an awesome contest! Happy Birthday CB!

This remote will come in hand to take the full advantage of my BB!

Happy Birthday Crackberry! The number one site for all BB needs! It has saved my rear a few times.

That is really a sweet BB! I would love to have one like that and pass my Curve down to my hubby and teach him how to use it LOL. I think it would really make our lives easier and much more productive an fun.

What a fantastic phone, I don't know what else to say except Wowzers!

~Jazzi~

I hope so. My birthday is March 5th and to win this would be awesome indeed. With being the only tech savvy person in my family, I would love to have the ability to change the same settings on their systems each and every time I visit them in MA during the summer while doing the same for my girlfriends family in WI the rest of the year. Well if I don't win, my birthday is a few days away, so I plan on getting this one way or another.......

The great folks at crackberry are too good to us Blackberry owners. And yet another great giveaway. Thanks a million if I win. And even if I don't.

A Proud Crackberrier. Lol.

All Im saying is, with the amount of replies that are on the post, the chances of winning a slim. Im still batting .000. Happy Birthday and here is to many more.

Not sure if my comment made it in the first time so I'll try again.

Having this would mean my wife and I would never again fight over the Harmony Universal Remote!

I have too many remotes already. I need a remote control bailout. My home entertainment center is too big to fail and all of these remotes pose a systemic risk to my girlfriend's sanity.

As a home theater system designer this seems like a fun product to try.Half of my customers might consider it. Especially with the storm.

I would love to hook this baby up to my 52" TV and full house surround sound! Anyways Happy Birthday Crackberry!

I love being able to control everything from my cellphone....I love my bold and crackberry :D If i do win the av shadow It would make me wanna buy the one they got comin out for ps3 cuz i would love that.

this thing looks freaking awesome and it will go greatly with my new storm and my big screen. Hook me up CB, Hook me up

thanks

Happy Birthday Crackberry. I'd love to win one of these. I just bought my first Blackberry at Christmas. I got the Storm. I'm trying to figure out how I ever got along without it before!

Having this gives the the chance to broaden my Blackberry horizons...and who wouldn't want to do that?

I just recently bought my first Berry (Storm 9530 on VZW) and have been checking this site everyday since I found it. This site has tought me a LOT about what my new Berry could (and since its a Storm, could not do). With that said, I'm left wondering how I missed the video for this? It sounds awesome and I will check it out when I get home.

Good luck!

I live with my parents and am constantly asked to help set up the home theater so that they can watch DVD's, adjust volume on the sound system or switch back to watching television. They are simply unable to manage the 5 remotes that currently sit in our living room. My Dad recently got a Blackberry Storm and it would be incredibly awesome if I could simplify things for them by setting up the AV Shadow to control their home theater. Please! This could save me from being their 24/7 techie! I'm tired of doing it for them!!!

The Unity4Life AV|Shadow will assure that my BB never has to leave my calloused thumbs! As an added benefit, such a product can be a plus for my marriage. Never again will I be wondering where my wife put the remote while cleaning the house, or why there are sticky, greasy remnants of my toddler's lunch strategically located on only the buttons I use. Daddy can just sit back in his chair and enjoy mysterious control of TV time (and remain pleasant).

I really don't enter into any contests, but I figured it couldn't hurt. I would really like to win, but I would also like to win the lotto:)
