Nico drives for the Mercedes GP Formula One team, and this image was snapped during preparations for the Turkish Grand Prix taking place this weekend. We're glad to have him on our team of BlackBerry users, and here's to hoping he isn't a fan of texting while...

Ingboo Updated - Fully Featured RSS Reader and More

I love to remain connected to what's going on in the world, in fact I absolutely crave it. Ever since my days with Viigo, I have been on the lookout for a decent RSS reader app. I've tried a few, and recently caught wind of a new app, so I gave it a whirl. The app is relatively small, for an RSS reader, making it a good candidate among some of the other bloated apps that can slow down some...

T-Mobile Bold 9700 Wireless Update to 5.0.0.714?

T-Mobile Bold 9700 Wireless Update to 5.0.0.714?

We've had a few emails on this so far, so we figured it was time to post it up and see what its all about. It seems that some T-Mobile Bold 9700 users have been provided an OTA software update that ended with OS 5.0.0.714 installed on their devices. T-Mobile just issued an official OS update to 5.0.0.586 last week, so this newer version seems like a bit of odd timing. The users are mostly...

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ]One of the most unique cases I've come across is the Case-Mate Smart Skin. I really dig this case as it offers great protection in a compact design. It has a very cool feel to it, and the keyboard cover is a great addition. The only hard part I found was getting used to typing on the "softer" keys, but after a while I barely noticed a difference. It works...

Gmail Two-Way Sync Up and Running ... But Is This It?

We've been over the issue of BIS two-way sync for Gmail more than a few times now, each time closer than the last.
