Seidio CONVERT Holster Combo with Holster

Throughout the years I have owned a plethora of cases. Some were thin and light, others were thick and bulky, and many fell somewhere in-between. One case that caught my eye was the Seidio CONVERT Case Holster Combo. Designed to accommodate whatever you throw at it, the design is geared towards a person's various needs. How you may ask? It is actually two cases in one, or rather what I like...

UploadToFlickr now lets you upload a whole folder to your account

As with many online services, BlackBerry 10 users need to rely on native developers to bring third party apps to the platform and they do a pretty good job with them too.

The app hasn't seen much update activity since then but it has seen an...
