Tuesday was chosen because it didn’t coincide with anybody’s favorite show.

Windows Live Search BETA available for BlackBerry

Windows released a BETA version of its Windows Live Search application for BlackBerries this week. Many Windows Mobile users have claimed Live Search as being even better than Google, but I don't think that can be said for the BlackBerry beta version just yet.
