Ever get annoyed when you plug your BlackBerry device in while in the middle of watching something, only to have the screen turn black and a big clock appear in your face? By default your BlackBerry device is set to display the clock when it is charging, so anytime a USB that is connected to a power source or computer is plugged in it will appear. Luckily for you this can be changed to enable Bedside Mode or do nothing at all, and making the change is quite simple.
Launch the Clock application

Sure they’ve grown in size and chipsets have become more power efficient, but for the most part, charging is still charging in 2014. Now, an Israeli firm named StoreDot has...
