RIM Has Some Fun With Latest PlayBook OS Update Description

Igloopowerup

I am not sure how this happened since not everyone is seeing it but whomever did this is awesome! I love that RIM is having some fun and excited about upcoming releases by showing their Canadian humor. This is what some users are seeing as a description for the OS update:

"This software release improves igloo strength by adding a base of hockey sticks to the exterior, as well as adding a heard of powerful, angry, yet playful beavers to protect the igloo. Get the Canadian only, igloo software update today at: www.blackberry.com/iglooPowerUp"

Sadly www.blackberry.com/iglooPowerUp does not go anywhere…

  1. Couldn’t believe it when I saw it since there’s usually nothing interesting, let alone funny in the update descriptions.

    Way to go hilarious RIM staffer!

  2. Flash update for me.

  3. That is awesome!
    A combination of natural Canadian humour (that’s the right way to spell it) and NHL Lockout Anxiety Syndrome.

  4. The updated today fixed the syncing problem with Yahoo Contacts. Yahoo contacts has not worked for the last 2 updates.

    • Thanks for the heads up Billy Bovine! I’ve been trying to get my Yahoo contacts reloaded on my new Playbook after my first one got stolen from my car.

  5. This update fixed the 30242 error. In App Purchases! FINALLY!

  6. The link is dead…and so is the beaver that was under the igloo after the sticks broke…lol

  7. Love that good, old-fashioned, Canadian Beaver!
    Keeps you warm all winter long…

  8. Such a shame the website link doesn’t go anywhere, that would have been SO cool! :)

    Si.
