Microsoft Resorts to Buying Off BB User Audrina Patridge

Ok Ok...we won't go TOO HARD on Microsoft for this, since they did donate $10k to Ellen's charity, but come on, we all know The Hills' star Audrina Patridge is a BlackBerry User and that she's not *actually* going to use the free Windows Mobile-powered smartphone they hooked her up with.  I commend Microsoft for the effort thought.

SafeWallet for BlackBerry

SafeWallet for BlackBerry

In my opinion, it's truly a glorious day when a Software company finally adds BlackBerry solutions to its array of applications.

Dear Berry, The other day I was riding my new expensive hybrid. I say "expensive" because you would think I would want to be extra special careful with it and it would be a priority over my BlackBerry - well I do want to take extra special care of it. I love it! So I figured out a way to find a front pouch that sits on my handle bars and I can just put my BlackBerry in it. I thought what a...
