For those who are wondering what Weird Al Yankovic has to do with a BlackBerry Passport let me explain.

Weird Al was the "Guest Editor" for this issue and both he and MAD Editor John Ficarra were there to sign copies of the magazine that hit newsstands on Tuesday. Not one to miss an...

BlackBerry -Leap-Closer

Last week we ran a poll asking if you would be buying the BlackBerry Leap. The results were pretty much as I expected, as you can see below, with the vast majority of voters going for the 'no' option. As I said then, I suspect that most CrackBerry readers are after top of the range devices and who can blame them. But I'm still certain that the BlackBerry Leap has it's place in the market....

It's not a game that I've played before, but I'm a sucker for this style, so I grabbed my BlackBerry Z30 and downloaded it with haste. And what a beauty it is.

Why is the UK's largest network so anti-BlackBerry?

EE-Passport-Hero

Possibly a harsh title, but as far as I can see it must be true, looking at the evidence. The guilty party is EE. Don't get me wrong - I'm a fan of the company, in fact I'm a customer and have no plans to change that. But it frustrates me how I see them either not offering BlackBerry smartphones as an option to customers - or pricing them so high that it makes sense to choose another device...
