Guess What SignalBooster For BlackBerry Does?!?

The latest Optimizer/Booster has made its way into App World and this time it promises that: If you lose your signal, this app gets it back in one-touch!

Some flaws are so silly,…

Rant! BlackBerry blog has new, lame design

I didn’t even know there was an “Official BlackBerry Blog.” I should have known. A friendly reader just told me that the “Official BlackBerry Blog” has a new design. It’s the beautiful thing you can see above. Ain’t that pretty? I like it. But wait…

RANT! RIM Please Communicate With Your Customers & Users

There is one thing you can always count on RIM doing (or in this case not doing) during a crisis. Communicating and providing transparency for their users. RIM has a history of data outages over the years culminating with 2 outages in the past 7 days. They might have a reason for the outage and…
