Wow, talk about a come back. Shortly after Google acquired GrandCentral back in July of 2007 many users had high hopes for what Google had plans to do with it.

RIM TicketMaster Sign Up Pages Goes Live!

We first heard news of TicketMaster teaming up with RIM way back in September at CTIA. Ever since then there has not really been any news about it and I was honestly starting to wonder if it had gone the way of the Picasa application RIM had promised us from wayyy back. However, I was pleasently surprised to see that RIM has updated some of the information on their site and there is now even a...
