Say goodbye to the old CrackBerry... the new CrackBerry launches today!

Cooking up a new CrackBerry!
By Kevin Michaluk on 6 Mar 2013 10:06 am EST

Today is the day CrackBerry Nation! We are literally minutes away from beginning the rollout of our long awaited and much anticipated "CrackBerry 10" website upgrade!

This is a MASSIVE push for us. It has been over two years since we have given the site a visual refresh and is the first time in our 6+ year history that we are upgrading our backend content management platform. 

During the upgrade we will be taking the CrackBerry homepage and article content offline.

While you wait... 

Take note, you will still be able to purchase goodies at ShopCrackBerry.com and browse and post in our CrackBerry Forums.

Site Relaunch Forum Contest: While the blogs are being upgraded, you can win a FREE BlackBerry Z10 from CrackBerry! Jump over to our CrackBerry site relaunch contest thread and leave a post - this is your last chance to enter!

ShopCrackBerry Site Relaunch Sale: Jump over to ShopCrackBerry.com and use coupon code NEWCB at checkout to save 15% on ALL BlackBerry Accessories! Sale ends tonight at midnight PST.

What happens next?

Once we take the site offline, expected downtime is approximately 4 hours. Be sure to follow @crackberry and @crackberrykevin on twitter and we'll keep you in the loop as we work through the process.

As we bring the new site online things may be a bit messy for an hour or two as we get everything in place. Once the relaunch dust settles, the next article you see from me will be a quick note welcoming you to the new and improved CrackBerry.com! Let's Rock & Roll This!!

I Bleed Black & Berry

Dave Peckens

Congrats on 2 milestones! BlackBerry 10 and now CrackBerry 10! Rock on!!!

Adam Zeis

Man. No one tells me anything.


My Dog eats pooh. There, now you know something.

I Bleed Black & Berry


Can't possibly be worse than mine but I love him anyway. He's just not allowed to lick me LOL


Winnie the Pooh!?

What did he ever do to your dog?


...In the mean time, we will be downgrading Android Central, iMore, WPC, and WebOS Nation, to bring them in line with their outdated OS's

I Bleed Black & Berry


Funniest thing I have read all morning


Android Central will be flooded with malware; iMore will have only one clickable link, all users must return to the home page before visiting any other pages; WPC will automatically update your OS to look exactly like the site, despite reducing productivity; and WebOS Nation will no longer be supported or updated with new material....


Congratulations at finally doing it! Can't wait to see what you've come up with! Go Team CrackBerry and BlackBerry!!




Been checking every day multiple times expecting to see the new vision. I hope Kevin isn't too exhausted since he vowed no sleep until the new site is finished.... about 5 days ago!

And I LOVE Breaking Bad!!!

Kevin Michaluk

To be honest... we're all pretty messed up right now.. tech, design and editorial team have pretty much going off three hours of sleep a night for the past week. Going to be worth it though!


Looking forward to it!


Finally! Can't wait to see it!


Why wouldn't you do it overnight? Avoid the inconvenience.

Marcus Adolfsson

Only 1/3 of CrackBerry's readers are in North America, plus it ensures that we are awake to fix bugs ;)


Awesome! I can't wait to see the new site!


Am I blind?

When does the outage start?

Edit: Oops, they are "minutes away".


Lets Get Ready to Kick Crackberry Up times 10 :) BB10 :D


very cool cant wait to see what the new cb looks like


The stock is up nicely, the market can't wait to see the new CRACKBERRY!!!!


Looking forward to the new site! Bring it on.


Forgot to mention love the Breaking Bad image :)


That picture is aweome. Good work guys


4hrs with no crack...??? nooooooo btw i love the breaking bad reference


I hope the first article posted on the new site is a surprise as well (USA availablity, new apps, new Z10 updates and features, etc). That would be freaking awesome!!!!

Bring it.


Right on, thanks for your input, effort and support through the years. I'm loving my Z10 and Crackberry 10 as well.
Crackberry.com addict.


Can't wait! Just want to wish Kevin and the Team god's speed with the update!


All the best for the change!


Excited, can't wait for the new rebuilt, redesigned and reinvented CrackBerry homepage. Best of luck, will be waiting anxiously for it to come online. Goodbye and hello to some more memorable times. All the best.


Nice! Good luck guys!


Are you changing to BLUE?


Good luck CB..! (keep refreshing the page) :-D


4 hours without Crackberry?!? Are you kidding me?



good luck with the migration!


That graphic scares me just a bit. Please tell me this is not tiles (as in Window's 8 style). That would be unfortunate.


Why we still online. Hit the lights


With Spring just around the corner, in with the new, out with the old.


Lets Rock an' Roll This!!!!!!!


Crack On CB Team!!!!!! :)
and Adam... (hahah he always complains nobody says anything to him in comments :-P).

experiment 626

"Make It So...............!"


Let's Rock and Roll this...

Sweet look


looks great on my brand new i mac


Looks edgy already. Can't wait to see it fully up and running. CrackBerry rocks!


New site is up and running and its looking good! Congratulations!!


Talk about "Cooking Crack!" #ZING

You left yourself open with that one; especially with the Breaking Bad theme. Regardless, congratulations and I'm loving the cleanliness of it all. I reckon "sophisticated" would be well suited to describe the new CB - love it.

Continue to mature and grow - cheers.


Le CrackBerry est mort! Vive Le Crackberry!


ThunderBirds Are Go!!!


Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet! Congrats CB


Wow. New format Looks great . Keep it up.


Nice eye candy Kevin, lots of work done here but...

The old CrackBerry was never PlayBook friendly and the New CrackBerry is worse.

Opening blog from the forums logs you out and you have to wait through another painfully slow page load just to sign back in.

Seriously there needs to be a minimal hardware standard to target average performance like a 1 Ghz system like the PlayBook in its current form.

Typing this comment is very laggy. Please streamline and make it PlayBook friendly.


Wahooo!!!! It looks grrrreat!!


hate the new layout and format, love the old one. Everything is all over the place. Old one was just alot more clean


Was taken back when the site popped up I wasn't expecting it. Looking Good. Its modern, but still crackberry. Me likey. Nice one CB crew
