Just this morning BitStream has followed up on realizing more of...

Wanted: Manager of Browser Development!

Looking for a RIM job? Sometimes the best way to get the inside scoop on what a company is up to is to check out their career postings. Example - not too long ago the Apple fan community went wild when the company put out a Request for Engineer to head up their camera development (video recording and more megapixels coming to an iPhone HD soon?!).

While this started out to just be an AT&T issue in the general Texas area, it quickly converted itself to an AT&T and RIM issue post haste. Not only did AT...

BlackBerrius Maximus - Part VIII - All for One and One for All

When last we spoke, I was trying to choose my "device of choice" among my many BlackBerrys. I have settled (at least for now) on my Storm. It does pretty much everything I would want a device to do. So much so, that I posed a challenge to myself - "what if I didn't use anything that was electronic for an entire day - except my BlackBerry Storm?" Now, this was intriguing - I would...
