BlackBerrius Maximus - part VI - STORM CHASING!

I'm getting too old for this! I can recall times in my life where I "camped out" to be part of something important or just something cool.

That was a long time ago. I did go to CompUSA when...

BlackBerry Storm Bumpy Typing Test!

Think back to my Pre-Release BlackBerry Storm Review and I made the hypothesis and drew the conclusion that a major benefit of the SurePress keyboard featured on the BlackBerry Storm is that it doesn't sacrifice on the ability to type in a bumpy environment...

  I'm a huge fan of Google Sync (as I'm sure many others are), but I was also seeking a way to sync my contacts from Gmail to my Curve since I don't use Outlook.  All the options I could find were either paid applications or just fell short in one way or another.  Well my prayers have been answered as Google quitely (and I mean quietly) slipped out a new version of Google Sync .  The updated...
