Where is That Wascally Curve?

Where is That Wascally Curve?

Research In Motion (RIM) announced the BlackBerry Curve weeks ago, so where are the little devices? People are getting anxious. And I have a few hundred bucks in my pocket burning a hole. It has been speculated that the blogosphere forced RIM to announce the release earlier than the company had wanted. But that said, it has been a couple of weeks and no one except a few lucky individuals has...

Backgammon King for BlackBerry

Backgammon King for BlackBerry

Something embarrassing happened to me this week. I was asked to review Backgammon King by Magmic and I have to admit it here, I never played the game of Backgammon before. Sure I’ve heard about it just like everyone I guess but I had no clue how to play. For the Backgammon pros here impatient to find out if this BlackBerry version is any good, bear with me for a few lines while I enlighten the...

Need a Break From Your 'Berry? - Try 2 Devices on 1 Number!

A BlackBerry for business use during the day... A regular ol' cellphone for use in the evenings... What a novel idea! Don't get me wrong now. I LOVE my BlackBerry. But sometimes I wish I could put it away and use one of those regular, slim, fit in your back-pocket cellphones for the evening! Perhaps I'm ignorant or un-educated on the matter, but I did some research today, and it turns out...

The Great Plural BlackBerry Debate

The Great Plural BlackBerry Debate

So what do we call our little devices if we find we have more than one of them? BlackBerries or BlackBerrys? The stress of it all. This debate has caused some considerable uproar in the office. In fact, an office-wide schism has opened up pitting the cult of “ies” against the “ys” and it threatens to rip asunder the whole CrackBerry.com organization. OK that’s a bit of hyperbole, but we...

Dear Berry: Lunch With an Addicted Co-Worker

Dear Berry: Lunch With an Addicted Co-Worker

Dear Berry, First of all, I'm not a BlackBerry owner, nor I have ever used one. However, I work in an office environment where there are a few who love their CrackBerry.  Usually it doesn't bother me at all and other times I feel jealous (since they can check and respond to their email while on the go, and I can't).  Usually I'm quite tolerant of others but today I observed some disturbing...

Jon Collins muses on the relative benefits of pocket pcs and BlackBerries and finally comes down on the side the Berry “Certain events can cause the need for a quick decision: it is strange how a single incident can completely upturn one’s perspective on things. It all started quite innocuously, as I was looking into changing mobile...

Mick, Keith, Ron and Charlie were allegedly signed to promote a special version on the BlackBerry but the deal was never followed through.
