Bing and My Verizon Being Pushed To Verizon Storm Users

We've been down this road before, and it looks like Verizon is yet again pushing out some apps to Storm users. We've seen Slacker and VCAST apps magically pop up, and now it appears as if both the Bing app and My Verizon are being pushed out by Big Red. Previously My Verzion was available for download and actually wasn't a terrible app. The new Bing app looks to be a love it or hate it as well...

If you've been thinking about picking up a new BlackBerry Smartphone from Verizon, you may want to move quick.

Slacker Radio got a little bump in versions recently. Version 2.0.91 is now available for download from the Slacker Radio website.

Business Trip or Backpacking, Bring your BlackBerry

After writing the review for GPSed, I had the urge to go on another trip. During the summer, we took an amazing family trip to Gibsons, British Columbia. I did promise not to touch my BlackBerry during that week, and I did surprisingly well (I only twitched a little). A promise is a promise, but I didn’t even think to argue its usefulness; even on vacation! It only makes sense to do anything...
