The Rubik's cube is one of those timeless, classic toys that you don't expect one can mess around with much, but you may change your mind after seeing Magmic's treatment on BlackBerry 10. We talked with Phil Giroux from Magmic at BlackBerry Live 2013 about their upcoming adaptation which has the standard 3 x 3 x 3 puzzle mode we're all familiar with, but they've also tossed in a 4 x 4 x 4 and a 5 x 5 x 5 cube to mix things up. There's also a 2 x 2 x 2 if you need to start off slow. Speaking of which, they've got a dedicated teacher section which offers newbies some starting strategies for figuring Rubik's cubes. This is great, because personally, I've only ever fiddled randomly with the things and never got very far.

Beyond that, you've got some visual enhancements, such as a picture mode which swaps out colors each side for an image of your chosing. Then there's 3D mode, so you can pop on your dorky glasses and be totally blown away by the cube's intense realism. Rubik's Cube is coming soon to BlackBerry World, but in the meantime, take a look at the new NFC capabilities of their hugely popular Texas Hold 'Em game

Fingers still not sore yet from typing the same sentiment over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over? Try picking up a Rubik's Cube, maybe it will calm you down for a second.

All right, already, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and think of you as that flower that keeps sprouting up between the crack(berrie)s.

Well first, don't have them come here and read this discussion, they will think we are a bunch of OCD tech weenies and run away. :-)

Here's a useless fact, Phil Giroux, Chief Gaming Officer for Magmic, is the same Phil Giroux that was the dude in the original Tom Green Show.. the one that just sat in the background, drinking coffee and laughing randomly.

Damn, not use to touchscreen yet. No more articles with the f ing coming soon bullshit.
