Add Water to the Mix - New Visto H2O Theme

Crossbar Theme = Cool!

No you can't create one with Plazmic just yet.  The new Crossbar theme is one of a kind (for now).  The first "Middle Zen" theme to grace a Blackberry desktop, the Crossbar is definitely one to check out.  Boasting 7 home screen icons (the most of any Zen theme) and docked messages, calendar and call log icons, it actually scrolls (carousel style) as opposed to just moving to highlight each...

U.S. Carriers - Food for Thought

For some, the BlackBerry carrier decision is easy - you get handed a BlackBerry by your company and use whatever carrier they tell you to use.

For others, the decision is more difficult and comes down to the details - price, available phones, customer service,...

Corey Visto BB Droid Theme

In my endless pursuit for the perfect theme for my 8830, I stumbled across BB Droid.  Modeled after Google Android, the theme is bright and bold and definitely worth my six bucks.  Corey Visto has had a few previous themes that I've been a fan of, but this one tops my list. The simplicity is amazing. The title bar simply shows a battery and signal meter, date, time and usage icons (bluetooth...

Nothing like trying to capitalize off someone else's mistake. Granted...

My Take on the Latest RIM Outage

Outage, failure, interruption, chaos, near death experience - call it what you will, but its all we've heard about all week.  For Blackberry users, Monday left us feeling like a toddler with no Spongebob.  Thought of "Why!
