Digby Review

Digby Review

While I was at WES, I spent some time talking to the good guys from 30 Second Software, makers of Digby. If you haven’t heard of it, Digby is an application that lets you order stuff from your BlackBerry. They have partnered with various companies, such as FTD.com, Godiva Chocolatier, and Vermont Teddy Bear to bring a convenient streamlined ordering process managed entirely from your BlackBerry...

LEGO My Blackberry

If you have been addicted to Crackberry as long as I have, you will remember using the classic 950 model back at the turn of the century.  Back then, Blackberries were more like glorified pagers then the hi-tech multimedia devices they are today.  I remember the first one I had.  I had it set to the "da da di di da da di <bzz> <bzz>" tone and vibrate notification when I...

Google Voice Local Search

Google Voice Local Search

This isn’t exactly BlackBerry specific, but it was so cool I thought it would be interesting to talk about anyway. Google Labs has a new (experimental) service to search for local businesses over the phone. It works from any phone and it’s a free service. Just dial 1-800-GOOG-411 (1-800-466-4411) and say the city and state you want a listing from. Then just say what you are looking for. You can...

RIM Dominating the Handheld Market

RIM Dominating the Handheld Market

Check out this groovy little chart we found recently. It clearly shows the dominance of RIM in today's current handheld market. Are there going to be any contenders to the throne in the coming year? Apple with its iPhone? Nokia with the new N800 and E62 models? Time will tell. But so far, all signs appear to be pointing in RIM's direction. In the next year or two, we predict that RIM will...

Canadian Rates a Travesty?

Canadian Rates a Travesty?

Sometimes it sucks to be a Canadian. Really. Crappy weather for half the year and only three Canadian teams made the NHL playoffs. And to make matters worse we reportedly get to pay more, way more, to our BlackBerry carriers. According to Thomas Purves at his blog, Canada is worse than many third world countries when it comes to the cost of mobile data access. As you can see from the chart...

Each and every day here at CrackBerry.com we hear stories from members and non-members regarding their addiction to BlackBerry devices. Some of the stories are humerous, (for example, how one of our members places his BlackBerry next to his ear while sleeping so that his alarm will wake him up... apparently he's a deep sleeper.) and other stories shed light on perhaps a more serious problem (i...
