BlackBerry Convenience key - TO THE MAX

Imagine this. You're at a crosswalk waiting for the light to change. Suddenly, three men (though one of them might be a lady, it's kind of hard to tell with the ski masks) wearing ski masks burst forth from a nearby bank. They make a dash for a black 1986 Chevy Caprice. You have just one chance, one small opportunity to save the day. Pulling your BlackBerry forth from its protective...

BlackBerry Torch 2 (9810) looks to be arriving on AT&T next month

For a while now we've been hearing that the BlackBerry Torch 2 9810 would likely arrive to carriers before the BlackBerry Bold 9900. While that remains to be seen, the evidence supporting that suggestion does keep adding up and the above image showing an August release does make sense. That said; one thing that doesn't make sense in the grand scheme of things is the fact that the device is...

Vodafone DE lists BlackBerry Bold 9900 as coming soon

Vodafone seems to be the winner in the "coming soon" race with the BlackBerry Bold 9900. Vodafone DE in Germany now has listed the upcoming device on their coming soon page. While there is no release date listed (as has been the case in other sightings) it's still a step in the right direction. Nothing big noted along here as the site just lists the specs of which we already know but no...

EPUB Reader updated to version 1.1, steps up its game

  A few days ago, I reviewed two e-Book readers for the BlackBerry PlayBook, EPUB Reader and PlayEpub. Both applications seemed lacking in one way or another, but both live up to their claim of letting you read EPUB format books on the PlayBook. In that review, I mentioned a few things that I thought should be improved upon. The latest release of EPUB Reader improves upon a few things. In...

Dropbox for BlackBerry updated to v1.0.49.1

Dropbox for BlackBerry has been updated again, this time to v1.0.49.1. Along with typical bug fixes, this update also brings with it a new layout and the addition of a Favorites tab. No more searching through folders everytime you need that logo or the 'good' pictures of the kids; just add them to your Favorites and they're available at the click of a button. As always, the Dropbox app is...

Hungry Kitty, a memory matching game for your PlayBook, not about Garfield

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] I like chicken, I like liver. PlayBook, PlayBook, please deliver. Wait…that isn't right. Talking with a few of the PlayBook reps on tour, the game Hungry Kitty was mentioned as a favourite. Hungry Kitty was developed by odd fractions – a division of QTECH software. I had downloaded it earlier, as the icon for the game resembled the Chesire Cat- at...

Order takeout from your BlackBerry device with SeamlessWeb

As an office drone I don't always have the opportunity to head out for lunch. Sometimes I'm literally tethered to my desk (pun intended). To abate those hunger pains sometimes ordering takeout is the only available option. My co-workers and I are frequent users of SeamlessWeb. It's a great way to order food from local restaurants and schedule for delivery or pickup. If you have a hectic...

10 Reasons why Google will buy BlackBerry

As a long-time BlackBerry enthusiast and proud Canadian, I want to see Research In Motion (aka BlackBerry) turn around the negative sentiment that is now stalking them in the media and gain back the sales momentum and brand popularity they have enjoyed in the past. But should this challenge prove too difficult in the months ahead or simply take too long to execute in the face of an eroding...

Tetris for BlackBerry by Electronic Arts

Okay, so that video up there isn't of Tetris on the BlackBerry. It does go to prove, though, that Tetris is one of those rare games, belovéd around the world. It has been played in over 50 languages and more than thirty platforms (plus buildings). Created in 1984 by Russian scientist Alexey Pajitnov, the game centers around cajiggering* seven differently-shaped "tetraminos" so that they slot...

BlackBerry Bold 9900 lands on eBay in the UK

Looks like the BlackBerry Bold 9900 is getting plenty of action in the UK. Just last night it appeared on Amazon UK for pre-order in white and now, pre-release Bold 9900 has popped up on eBay in the UK. As always, it being a pre-release device means it is priced fairly high but if you've got an extra £900.00 (approx. $1,447.97 USD) it can be yours. It's unlocked, and unlike some previous...

Ryan and Isaac meet the PlayBook

I'm talking about the Meet the PlayBook tour that has introduced many to RIM's tablet. Near the end of May, Bla1ze and Michelle had a chance to visit one of the PlayBook packed Peterbuilts. On Canada Day, I met up with our own Isaac...

CrackBerry reader Otton gets a sweet BlackBerry cake for his birthday!

CrackBerry member Otton sent in pictures of the BlackBerry cake that he received for his June birthday from his girlfriend Malena. Modeled after his BlackBerry Bold 9700, it really shows just how addicted he is to his BlackBerry. This style is a bit more subdued than some we've seen in the past, but it's unmistakably a BlackBerry and looks awesome! I hope it tasted as good as it looked. Happy...

We'll hold off on...
