Wires stretch down from the ceiling like alien tentacles and large burly men in overalls with names like Burt and Gus walk among them. The men pause often, eyeing the assorted cables with suspicion while they mutter to themselves, and then clamor back up a ladder to tame them with...

Setting Up BlackBerry Desktop Manager with Bluetooth
