CrackBerry 10th Anniversary Podcast: Who the heck is @BBMobile?

< >

The Oatmeal never ceases to make me laugh, and this topic hit so close to home, I couldn't help but share it. Titled "Why I love and hate having a smartphone", it sounds all too familiar and I couldn't help but chuckle while reading it. The above cartoon is just an excerpt from the blog, as the entire post is too long to fit here, so follow the link below for the rest of the comics. ...

Sundrops for the BlackBerry PlayBook - Caribbean pearl-collecting physics fun!

Lately, I've been hooked on Sundrops, by Cat Games. One of the newest games in App World for the BlackBerry PlayBook, Sundrops is a fantastic find that I can't seem to stop playing. You are given little suns as your game piece, and your goal is to launch the suns and clear the board of multicolored pearls. There are obstacles (of course) in the form of walls, wooden planks, bouncy bumpers and...

How to turn your BlackBerry PlayBook into a world clock

Using the PlayBook's clock application, you can add as many clocks as you'd like to it.

BlackBerry World 2011 video shows off conference highlights

[ youtube video link for mobile viewing ] Ever since my first conference way back when, I have always looked forward to BlackBerry World (formerly know as WES) each year. I get a chance to talk to people in the BlackBerry circle I don't see often as well as hear about new things coming down the road. In the past there have been plenty of device announcements at the conference so it's...

How precious is your BlackBerry PIN?

For quite a while now, we’ve seen BlackBerry ads focusing on the power of BBM. One that stands out is what many like to call BBM Flirt. I don’t know if it’s me, but I couldn’t see myself walking up to a complete stranger and asking for their PIN (I know my wife would have something to say about it). As soon as I think about that, I then wonder how many times I’ve added someone from the...

BlackBerry Torch 9850 coming to Sprint in August

The last we saw of the BlackBerry Torch 9850 / monaco was on a Sprint inventory sheet alongside the BlackBerry Bold 9930. While the BlakBerry Bold 9930 had a date at that time, the BlackBerry Torch did not. Now though, that inventory documentation appears to of have been updated and looking at the list now shows the BlackBerry Torch 9850 as arriving in 8/21/11. In some related information, we'...

Water and electricity do not mix. All those electrical components and doodads inside your BlackBerry are carefully insulated… with air. Air is a wonderful insulator; it doesn’t conduct electricity. Otherwise, we’d all get horribly shocked every time we went to unplug a lamp. Water conducts electricity; poorly, but it does. When your smartphone gets dunked in water, all those carefully...

Comb Over Charlie - fun for your BlackBerry PlayBook

  At first, Comb Over Charlie appears to be less than it actually is. The graphics, though beautifully rendered, are simple; looking like they were drawn by Napoleon Dynamite or Demitri Martin. Comb Over Charlie has two controls: float and fire. Sound effects are minimal and perhaps a bit cheesey. The "ouch" sound made by the giant at the end of each level is a good example. Imagine a...

It's been a couple of months since we saw the last update to the Adobe AIR SDK for the BlackBerry PlayBook, but it seems that RIM slipped out an update (bringing us to v1.0.2) at the end of May without us noticing. It doesn't appear that there are any dramatic changes or additions, which is likely why RIM didn't send this one out with a bunch of fanfare, but an update is an update nonetheless...
