Peek's BlackBerry Storm Launch Day Stunt

I just saw this video posted over at BerryReview (happy birthday Ronen!) and thought all the Storm chasers in the house would get a kick out if it. It's sort of funny in a sad way... You've gotta hand it to the folks at Peek though - they're doing everything they can to spread the word about their email-only dumbphone (as opposed to smartphone). In NYC on Storm launch day the Peek crew...

Student Docket for BlackBerry

Student Docket for BlackBerry

When I was going to school, I would look forward to this time of year. Taking a break from classes and trying to fit sleeping into my schedule. Also at this time, I remember myself slacking in the organization department. I would start the school year off with a place for everything and everything in its place.

Gary Krakow on Research in Motion Stock

We don't talk about RIM's stock price very often here in the CrackBerry blogs, instead keeping our focus on BlackBerry devices and software and accessories and things of that nature.
