In my ongoing quest to maintain a healthy balance between CrackBerry addiction and other parts of my life, I have named 2007 to be my Year of Fitness.

But now that spring is...

Mother's Day Gift Ideas for the BlackBerry Mom - part 1 - Pink Cases!

With Mother's Day JUST around corner (for those who have forgot it's coming up on Sunday, May 13th), it is time to start thinking Gifts for Mom. While the beauty of flowers as a gift cannot be disputed for the "typical" mom, I'd argue a blackberry use'n and abuse'n mother would MUCH prefer something for her blackberry that's PINK.

It looks like the Men with BlackBerries have finally come forward and offered an explanation for the Great BlackBerry Outage of 2007. The cause?
