To all our BlackBerry using and abusing friends in the United States... Happy Thanksgiving from CrackBerry.com!

Let's give thanks today for all the Good Things we have in Life... Family, Friends, Health... and let's not forget to also give thanks to our friends at Research In Motion for that precious gift of the BlackBerry. Not only has it changed the world, but it also gave us the reason to build this site and bring all of us BlackBerry users together in a happy CrackBerry family. :-)

So while you're out visiting your friends and family this holiday weekend, be sure to spread the word that the #1 BlackBerry site on the net just got a BIG site update this week and is looking pretty good! The site changeover has gone smooth for the most part, and the Canadian members of the crack team will continue working on our post-relaunch tweaks today and through the weekend. We've received a ton of overwhelmingly postiive feedback on CB's new look, as well as some very helpful feedback the past couple of days, which we're listening to closely and will continue fixing up any loose bugs and making further tweaks and improvements over the days ahead. As always, you'll want to keep it locked to CrackBerry.com. 

Enjoy your turkey..... Happy Thanksgiving!!

Woo my second first this week. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving too Kevin. I hope we will see a matching mobile site, then this site will really be awesome.

Also can we see some improvements to the search function. I miss being able to select which I want to search, and the google page it loads looks kinda lame considering all of the beautiful new site design surrounding it.

Yep, the m.crackberry.com site will soon get an update to better match the new site. Will be a fairly basic update to start (new header, new link colors, etc.) and down the road will add some new features to it.

Tweaking up the search functionality is on the list.  We find the google results to be the fastest/most accurate, hence why we have gone that way.  Couple notes... when do you a search, on the results page there is a filter at the top. You can immediately filter for forum / accessory store / app store results.  THEN, if you want to search for ringtones or wallpapers, simply go to the ringtones page or wallpapers page and there are search fields on those landing pages to search just those sections.  So the functionality hasn't really changed - we just moved it a bit around to be focused on where you are. 

Definitely a lot left for us to tackle - going live with the redesign was the first big step.  Now we have to take a bit more time to make it perfect. Keep watching the site.. it'lll be fun to see how we evolve it from here :)

All the best!

Definitely looking forward to everything you all have to offer. I was just looking at the mobile site on my 9550 and made the decision to keep the browser settings on page view instead of column so I could see the the site as it is. Sure it took a while and all, but damn does it look good. :)

Yes it will be fun haha. I truly love the site design and I agree that google's search results are the most accurate, but I'm wondering if maybe there could be some designs added to the page (Like the login page) to make it look better. Well either way have a great Thanksgiving and loving the new site UI.

Happy Thanksgiving Kevin!! :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and the rest of the team, Kevin. Thanks for making this such a community! I came for some info on the curve 8330m almost 2 years ago, stayed for the community!

I too am looking forward to the mobile site revamp, as I spend most of my CB time on my BB.

I'm thankful for the Crackberry Nation...it's given millions of us info and guidance to help us through our "addiction"!

Guys (and to the ladies behind the scenes keepin the guys rockin),

It says a lot when the first thing I do when I wake up on a holiday is check your...no no.. OUR site. I can't thank you all enough for being the absolute best at what you do. You've become a constant in my daily life and wish you all the best this holiday season. Go get your turkey on aye!

Happy Thanksgiving, Kevin! And to all of the crackberry team and all of the wonderful crackberry users and abusers!
