Rumors, rumors everywhere. Last week the word all over was that the Storm 2 would (hopefully) launch by the end of June (or maybe July).

Yesterday's blog post on the official release of SmrtGuard jogged my memory on something I've been wanting to make mention of here on the blogs for a while... the explosive growth we're beginning to see of BlackBerry in Indonesia.

Who Wouldn't Want to Live Here?

Who Wouldn't Want to Live Here?

No, BlackBerry Circle isn't located in Waterloo (RIM's World Headquarters) but rather beautiful Colchester, Vermont. But seriously, who wouldn't want to live on a street that shares the name of their favorite smartphone?

Back in February we called Episode 031 CrackBerry A.D.D. because we bounced all over the place. I'm pretty sure that name serves Episode 036 pretty well too.
