CrackBerry.com Fitness Challenge - Get Fit, Raise Money for Charity, and Spread the CrackBerry.com word!

In my ongoing quest to maintain a healthy balance between CrackBerry addiction and other parts of my life, I have named 2007 to be my Year of Fitness.

Google Maps on BlackBerry

Until recently, I would just print out those directions and take them with me. But now I’ve discovered Google Maps for the BlackBerry. I installed it OTA...

Who Needs A Satellite?

Who Needs A Satellite?

One of the knocks on BlackBerry Global Positioning Systems (GPS) is the need to have a special GPS receiver attached to your Berry.

Indeed many users should start thinking about seeing a therapist when they find themselves having to check their BlackBerry for new email every 2 minutes or so. It’s just that the media seems to love to portray BlackBerry users in a bad light. When a...
