dbregman

Hook me up with the Av Shadow!

papachango1313

glorman#CB

This thing looks awesome!

Sylverlady

I Love CB, have to get my daily fix.
Takes awhile to read up on the latest info.

This AV|Shadow on my beloved Storm would
be great to have!

I could stay comfy and keep browsing CB,
while I operate all my av items!
(Love rocking to the golden oldies while
doing my internet 'chores') LOL

Thanks guys!

unsn66

yo hooooooook me up~ please~ please please~

mcm180

I'd love to win this cuz we just got VZW Fios ... and there are a few Sets within 14 feet of each other and the tv's don't know which control to respond to and go rather bonkers quite often. lol

badmonkey68

Got the storm, need the goods. Gimmee.

nole girl

I would love to be able to put this to use!

MrDJ921

Very Cool product, and yes I would like to win it

kwongsosaputro

I have read the review for this unit, and i am quite impressed with the feature, although i am not a big fan on tinkering with my garage door circuit... hopefully winning this one though!

Luv4BB

Perfection is pretty hard to get but once AV has wifi capabilities it will be Perfect...

Big supporter.

Ktownerxx213

happy birthday crackberry!

keep it up!!!! :D

that remote looks freagin sexyyy

jkassay

Can't wait to try it. The video looks great!

tbrakef

If I won that would be so tight. This is a slick device/software and would be a good addition to any BB. However, as a college student its tuff to come by money for these types of luxuries.

yapkuen

Especially accessories for my Crack habit.

arcticboost

Can't wait to see this bad-boy in action!

bored9999

I would love to win this

sonofpear

What would we do without you???

Maven454

In the words of greedy addicts everywhere...
Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

alu1008

I am not sure whether I like this device but would be nice to have it and try it out.

athompkins28

I need this so I can start up the new remote control game show. Sincerely Ken Ober

beavercountyemt

it's like they greatest thing ever. y wouldn't you want one

fillossofer

I want to win AV|Shadow for my Storm! Happy Birthday CrackBerry!

DisturbedG

I cant wait to see what this can do on a storm! The amazing things that people have came up with on blackberry's is just amazing and I am just glad to be apart of it.

I always know where my BB is but never my remote, this would mean no more worrying!

spedley

Just what i need another reason to be on my Blackberry while relaxing on the couch.

EightBall#CB

Perhaps if I win this I will never lose my tv remote again!

djmarcox

I live on my crackberry as it is... with this thing I will have no reason to put it down... PICK ME.....

axofbutter

Ricanman

HAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPY 2 YEAR BIRTHDAY!! you should pick me because i dont have a remote control for my t.v's and because i owe verizon 500 dollars for not returning my broken blackberry(equipment charge)so i cant afford this application!!... i choose to try to fix it instead because i didnt have the heart to return my first blackberry..its the love of my life :D

crapbox

oh man just what I need! I hope the winner is me :D

dezicartel

This has got to be the coolest program I've seen to date on the storm...I have a surround sound, blu ray, stb, tv, etc...all with their own remote, this would be extremely useful for my entertainment setup, and once i have it, I can show it off to the rest of my friends and family and get them hooked as well!

indychuck

WooHoo! send one this way! This would be a great product for me.

Storm5150

Sign me up, I'd love to have the ability to change channels on the 46"LCD samsung from the pool.

ronkers

joseph2076

man, having this at home will the best thing ever ...i wouldn't need to look for the remote control ever again..because i always have my blackberry with me...and i will never lose my BB storm

realdealio

this is great for those with roommates who somehow lose/take every other remote goodness!

MrShiza

This would be great to have. Being able to control my Home theater with my Blackberry.....

lazy202

Sweet thanks for the giveaway hope i win

Gimik

This would be the ultimate in remote control dominance. I'll take two :D

FollowMeSoccer

I have been waiting for this product to come out! It is the only thing the Palm has over the BBs - the IR sensor. I really would be able to do everything with my BB! The only thing is I would kill myself to blow my apartment rent on it - I am a poor student. Help me out!

Please! Please! Please!

geokaii

these contests are fantastic!

XENOberry 9530

To be able to have this capability in a phone is almost to amazing to imagine... especially when I think of the first Cell phone my family had 12 years ago and what it was capable of doing in relation to it's size.

Truly amazing.

Fondo23

Why do I really need this? Why not! With everything going on in the financial world, I'm not sure when I will be able to actually BUY something this cool. Also, well, I kinda sorta lost the other remotes :(

Iceberg75

wow! BlackBerry life just keeps getting better!

drewclark5

Happy Birthday CrackBerry!

TTune

I have been watching this develop over the last year or so with some envy. Review after review all point to the "cool" factor and the functionality.

Sadly - she-who-must-be-obeyed hasn't read all the reviews nor has she even started using her Pearl to full extent let alone seen the benefits of 3G on my Bold. .

Now THIS contest comes along and it may be my lucky day :)

Thank you to both CB and Unify4Life for sponsoring this. Very cool.

Cheers!

kcurve

This is such a fantastic program! I would love to have this!

UrbanNewz

So here's the deal...I have 2 soon to be 3 tv's in the house and 4 kids, well you can add 1 more kid because I have a 18 month old dog too. My wife and kids always seem to misplace the remote whenever I want to sit down kick my feet up with a couple cold MGD's and watch LeBron smack the s**t out of Iverson's shot, watch Ray Lewis blast the s**t out of ___________ (insert any first string quarterback's name in the blank), and maybe an occasional all day binge of TruTV. To be said a little simpler, I can't watch what I want because they have misplaced every single remote we have in the house, including the DVD remote (so the Scarface, Old School, Pineapple Express Saturday evening marathon I had planned just went out the window). Oh yeah, I didn't mention that we have had to go through 5 TV and 3 dvd remotes because my yellow lab seems to think that chewing on those things that look like bones (which happen to be the remotes) are fun.

If I had the Unify4Life BB remote, I would always be able to watch what I want when I want. No one will ever be able to misplace another remote from me again because my BB isn't likely to leave my hands, or hip, anytime soon.

Sure my wife would whine about me "not putting my phone down" but she wouldn't complain when she loses the remote. I can simply reassure her things will be okay because I always have a RELIABLE back-up option.

That's enough ranting for me. Please just select my username and I'll provide all the info needed to have a Unify4Life BB remote sent to my house.

Thannks!

-P

Ryan Kiggins

I want to win the remote thing!!

axd427

I'm constantly losing my remote control for the many devices hooked up to my television set. I never misplace my blackberry because its always in my hands. So this device will be perfect for me to control all the devices on my blackberry since its always in my hands.

elementfire180

This is such a cool idea.

mikjf32

I want to win something from Crackberry!! I would be excited!!

scottraponi

dcuozzo

My blackberry is always with me. How great would it be to eliminate another 1/2/3 remotes? Fantastic!

TheDude4bides

These deals are a great way to get some participation! Can't believe they can get their hands on so much free stuff!

snowindec9

I have not won anything ever from any contest in my life.

Crackberry.com is one of the greatest things that happen to my life. This site offers so much, i absolutely love it.

Crackberry has the most innovative minds i have ever come across. I loved what people did for the storm contest.

i am crackberry 4 life!

sternweezy

This would great for eliminating all the remotes around the house.

akingtrey

How cool is this!? With someone who has every new electronic gadget in his house and car, this would be a great addition. Connecting life with the environment...so cool...

Rockafella

I really would like to have this at home. It would come in handy. The features it has are amazing.

sunrock#CB

I'd probably never buy it - but could definetely use it

peeks617

My husband had just mentioned the other night that this would be a cool feature and then I saw this video on CB! He's so excited!

mcferreira

Nice. It will be so cool. I probably wont tell the wife about it for a week, and piss her off by changing the channels. ahahahha

Mordendrak

Innovation like this product is what makes BlackBerry stand out among all the iclones

rsOne

This would be sweet to have in my livingroom...Good Stuff

cjengine1

This Looks like a Bitchen product would love to own something like it.

cpuking2009

i never can find a universal remote cool enough to replace my 4 remotes my search is over!

dskmad17

I need two, so hopefully I can win 1 and buy the other.

happy bday crackberry

pecanBB

Dear Unify4Life and Kevin,

The reason I would love to win this device is simple. I am a flight attendant that does many layovers in different hotels at different cities. Always bothers me when I get in from a long trip and I am settled in and about to watch TV when bam! the TV remote does not work! **Ta-la** Is when the lovely AV|Shadow comes to play and saves me stress.

That is my reason and also that I never win but I have learned "Never Say Never"

Best regards,
PecanBB

Jayel

This is another gret example of multiple devices converging into one. I would love to have this @ home oavr even work.

boilerupfuckthehoosiers

This would be amazing..Hook me up playa!

thanks

BADST39_Rattler

Please make me the remote queen.

ChiBerry

What a sweet deal - it would make a great present for my Blackberry-loving bro (assuming I don't get tempted to keep it myself)!

St13fL3r

aboveaverage12

So totally want this!! Hope I can win!!!

mikenificent

i would love to have one of those shadows . i recently bought a universal remote and it doesn't even have the right codes to input for all my devices so im left with a lot of controllers like everyone else but after seeing this baby on CES i wanted one right away . Kudos on a great product

Nick2515

These things are awesome, I especially like the garage door control model. Also, I wouldn't mind one that let me drive my car using my BB. James Bond style.

smoothacoustic

Seriously I've got like 7 remotes in my living room, this app would be a LIFESAAVER.

juliecohen

My daugter loves the remote...so I would be able to control everything from my storm! It would be perfect.

pac10dawgs

Happy #2 Crackberry!!!! Now let me control my TV. :~)

Yeah_ME

This would make a nice addition to my living room. Nothing better then being able to control everything from a device that is always by my side:) Please pick me!

STEVES STORM

I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THIS. AS OF RIGHT NOW I HAVE
FIVE (5) REMOTES JUST IN MY LIVING ROOM. 1 FOR THE
TV, 1 FOR MY DIRECT TV BOX, I FOR MY AMP, 1 FOR MY
BLUE RAY PLAYER AND 1 FOR MY HDMI SWITCH BOX. DRIVES \
ME NUTS.

THANKS
STEVES STORM

one4thewings

You can't win if you don't put your name in the bucket.

I'd love to win this because I have several devices to control and would like to consolidate remotes.

asylvia

I could totally use something like this. It would be great to control my tv with my bberry!

smcdonough

Not going to be annoying saying pick me pick me pick me. I got a storm and think this app would be great like whats better than a storm remote? i dont have much in life other than my blackberry. Im only 17 soon to be 18 and how cool would it be to be the first kid on the block one with a storm ha first in my school too but first with this awesome technology.

ddsmyers

Thats Awesome!! I want one!! :)

rayyxP

WOOOW, this device seems amazing....amazingly convenient. Blackberry is already so much, but a universal remote on top of that???

angrysicilian

Do Want! The remote for my stereo in the bedroom broke so I can't lower the volume/turn it off when I want to go to sleep without getting up and freezing. This would be perfect.

davidbrice81

Just one more great use for the BlackBerry!

amm229

This AV remote would be the PERFECT way to tie together my AV system. Unfortunately, being a dirt poor student, I cant justify spending $100.... Crackberry.com has given me hope! I love this site, happy 2 year bday!

dangeross

this would be awesome!

brightdog

I'm relatively new here with my Storm, but would love to Try this out. Thanks!!

This is smart computing at its best!

Boarder11

Zoraks

I'd love to win one!

Gurt204

cowens677

Would love to have this

bpfeiffer

Nice! One remote for everything. My remotes go missing all the time, but I always know where my BB is.

mary jane justus

Well I have to say only that the shadow is preety!
I could't see the video bacause the website was blocked.
I'm just trying to get use to my blackberry.It has so many
features I end up with a headache by the of the day.
Who ever wins one of the shadows I'm sure you will be very
pleased.
My children make fun of me because i'm not very good at this.

credo

I need this so that I will be one step closer to not needing my wife. I still need her to tell me where she left the remote. Since my Storm never leaves my hand (even on the throne), I would truly be the king of my living room.

andyr2007

it would be kewl to win this remote

Pant85

this would be the perfect thing for me, as I have a different remotes for my pc (which is hooked up to my tv), the set top box (freeview), the surround sound, the Wii and the Xbox 360, not to mention the TV itself!. So basically I have 6 remotes lying around, and to make matters worse...the tv is on the same frequency as the surround sound, and my wireless remote for my media center pc is on the same frequency as my xbox remote! so im constantly switching things on/off that i dont want to! Basically, my remote situation is in a sorry state of affairs, and this product seems to be the perfect solution! I am definitely right in the heart of your target audience, so please pick me!!

orb2k

I find this item would be super usefull since I always have a my crackberry beside while I'm watching tv and stuff, I'LL HAVE FULL CONTROL OVER MY UNITS, SICK!

rinnr1

Yes I've been reading up on these and I was thinking about getting one for my house!!

Woohooo they rock

gongza

You guys are great! HB to crackberry!

dyerberry

Why would i love to win this? simply because i'm lazy...just being honest...my blackberry does everything for me, sometimes forget I even have a computer...why not add remote to the list ;)

DxUxSxTxIxN

this thing would be awesome =)

MorningAngelus

Anyone else think there should be a "CrackBerry4Life" app? :P

eburganjr

ouu! I want one! my birthday just passed on the 21st! :)

brunsky56

This would make life so easy. i need one.

mrc2u2

this would be so nice to have on my blackberry storm! OMG!

peterodd4161

Sweat gift on your birthday. call it www.crackpotato.com,ha ha.

Icetreay

This is cool, now all we need is something that can remote start your car

smokeystorm

I ALWAYS know where my blackberry is but where did that damn remote go!?

EvJ296

sounds great, happy birthday crackberry!

quiltdiva

Nice! A bit expensive, though.

Icetreay

Happy birthday Crackberry!

STEVES STORM

I DON'T KNOW HOW ANYONE CAN LIVE WITHOUT ONE OF THESE.
I LOVE YOU CRACKBERRY! HAPPY B-DAY. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

jlank

Cool more free stuff to win

dbjork

This product would be amazing to have. I really need a universal remote so that I don't have to keep using 5 remotes to control all my A/V equipment. what could be better than using my phone that is always with me.

wingman4life

A Wingman never leaves his pilot and just like the Unify4Life AV/Shadow, it will not leave my side. I can just think of all the awesome things I am going to be able to use with just this one device and of course my Blackberry Storm. What better solution to come home with after my 9-5 healthcare IT job, open the garage, turn the TV on and flip through all my sports channels, MTV - ABDC, and then flip to my XBOX 360 and start gaming. Hopefully I'll be one of the lucky ones to get a crack (had to make the reference) at winning this on Crackberry. You guys are awesome...T. Cruz

See almost like Tom...Wingman...get it :?

rwking

I've been looking for something like this for a very long time! Cant wait to get one! Hopefully FREE!!!!

emuriuki

Never saw this coming. Viva crackberry and Unify 4 life!!

cuban_dudeca

Not only have I not won a contest here on Crackberry but I also really want the AV Shadow. I have a 46" LCD TV, Xbox, reciever all sorts of AV equipment this would go perfect. I am also stoked that they ported over the program to the Storm.

Justsmokeityo#AC

Have about 7 remotes sitting on my coffee table to control all the electronics right now, sure would be sweet to be able to replace them all with my BB Storm.

nanny88

I Love Crackberry!! Happy B-Day!!

Wisconsin9erfan

Sure I will take one of these as well as winning the Blackberry Curve 8900.

wozniak3

I watch so much TV, and I love my blackberry. Using my Blackberry to watch TV would be amazing!

tiger3p

This would be good to have for my home theater!

diale

I would like to win because I loves the toys. I am a goodie freak. Techie-toy poor. This would be an opportunity to engage in a cool techie toy and not be poorer for the experience, in a mannor of speaking.

psycosis86

I just bought a new tv this would be awesome!

ryatch16

This sounds like such a sweet product. Here's hoping for a win...

hognelson

Very cool. So pick me.

pmjohnson99

If I win I don't have to justify another gadget purchase to my better half.

probbiethe1

This is awesome my storm could use this so much with all the gadgets i have at my house being able to control them with my storm would be the ultimate because i never set my storm down.

blakelloyd

crackberry is what keeps me going through my workdays

teaguem32

I love the thought of using my storm as a remote. I always know where my phone is!!

dmbatey#CB

I have 3 kids and every remote control I buy is missing the cover. Between my 2 teenagers and 5 year old I rarely get the opportunity to watch TV, but when I do I'm always hunting down my batteries back from digital camera's, toys, or flashlights. (which half of those are also missing the covers.

My bedroom remote is a mess of scotch tape and the batteries still do not fit snug so one has to push the battery from underneath and then push the channel or volume at the same time. My DVD remote in the same room is long gone as well as the media remote for my Xbox. I was smart enough to put our Plasma in the Bedroom or I'm sure the logo for Disney or MTV would be firmly etched in place as the kids often forget to turn off the other commonly placed TV.

I saw this product as WES and was very impressed. I would really love to have one.

D

papped

U-N-I-F-Y, that spells unify

captaincaa

That would be pretty cool to have around.

chuchudave

Please please please pick me. I love my Blackberry Storm. I love Crackberry.com and I love my 50" Plasma TV. This would be a cool thing to win!

mooshka360

Sign me up, baby. I have to say this is a pretty nice product.

sbroomheadsr

Now this is a great addition to upgrade a Geek to an UberGeek.

Of course, I am that geek!

mrdark5555

I would love to win this.

james244

This is one of the coolest most useful tools I've seen for the casual consumer! I always have my bb on my lap or right next to me, how great to be able to control the tv. And the garage door opener is awesome too. I think the best feature of the door opener is that it recognizes when you are arriving home and opens the door for you. One downfall I see is keeping your bluetooth turned on which significantly reduces battery life. Awesome ideas, I look forward to seeing more from this company!

oldsoldier

I get my my 8330 in less than a week, this would be PERFECT!!!

oldsoldier

I get my my 8330 in less than a week, this would be PERFECT!!!

rjm23dx1

I'm in class right now and I'd love to have the ability to turn off the projector my professor is using.... Please give me the power! Thanks...

justmemjs

Had another dream last night, and the best part was when I got up this morning I was able to rewind it with myUnify4Life's remote and watch it over and over. COOL!

jamezco

This Is An App Which I Really Want !!! woooooooooot! xD

bubbastar

What a great item and who doesnt want all remotes in one spot

jongrreat

I would love to have this. It would take a lot of different devices and combine them into one handy package. This is something I need.

kamek89

I want one!!! This product looks great

chadkochis

This is probably one of the coolest ideas I have ever seen for a blackberry. I love technology and i would love to win this sweet device. Good work Unify4life

Deanzke

ssghori

This is the gateway to what's to come technilogically...if only I could toss my remoteS away and live in what I was expecting for the 21st century...

DDess

I've been telling all my friends that my BB can be used as a remote, but none of them believe me! I will def. be showing them this article.
