Verizon's Snowy Surprise, Hilarious Video!

Now this is just hilarious! The Boy Genius posted on this video today that was put out by Verizon Wireless back in early January but somehow didn't make the tech blogs sooner. It's the first time I saw it though and it's awesome! Definite competition for the recent T-Mobile ad we just saw the other day. Verizon got their "network" together for an impromptu commercial and to an extent scare...

Review: Seidio Spring Holster for the BlackBerry Storm

Review: Seidio Spring Holster for the BlackBerry Storm

I love my Storm, but this thing is kind of big. It is just big enough to be uncomfortable in my front pocket - which is too bad. I sometimes feel uneasy about putting it in my coat pocket unprotected - I don't want to scratch the screen (or the nice shiny finish for that matter.) So, what am I to do? I have never really been a fan of "Holsters," I think they make me look like a 45 year...
