Wow, it's Friday already. Did this week just fly by or what? There wasn't too much in the way of earth-shattering, crazy-exciting news to report on this week, but lots did happen in the CrackBerry world including the "official" launch of the AT&T BlackBerry 8820. Read the Headlines After the Jump.
2.Idokorro changed their name to Rove - It looks like it's becoming a trend to admit when you make mistakes. Palm did it when they decided to can the Foleo, and now BlackBerry solutions developer Idokorro has followed suit in admitting their wrong by renaming their weird to pronounce company name to Rove. I have to admit, Rove is much easier to say than EYE-DOH-CORE-OH (or was it EYE-DOKE-A-ROW), but when I hear ROVE I think of the Mars' Rovers, not a BlackBerry app company.
4.Gizmo Project Comes to BlackBerry - Gizmo Project released a BlackBerry compatible version of their software this week. Gizmo Project is an all-in-one instant messenger (ties in Gizmo Project, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live, Google Talk users) and allows you to make free calls to other Gizmo users and cheap VoIP calls to cell phones and landlines. Sweet!
6. CrackBerry.com went down! - Yeah, that's right, we had a small server glitch yesterday that caused us to be inaccessible to the CrackBerry-loving world for about one hour, twenty three minutes and forty-two seconds. CrackBerry.com has been going through some crazy growth (every day we set a new record for the number of visitors coming through the site) and it looks like we're almost due for a server upgrade. It's a headache, but a good headache to have. Keep Spreading the CrackBerry.com word!
