A study earlier this week recounted some pretty extreme situations in which folks just couldn’t put their BlackBerrys down, but something tells me BBCool readers, hardcore users that they are, have a few stories of their own. We’ve all heard the term “crackberry” before, and usually laugh it off, but every once in awhile a situation pops up where you realize, “Hey, I really do use this thing a lot.” So, for this Weekly Contest, we’re giving open-mic status to everyone out there to tell their most embarassing, funny or otherwise notable BlackBerry addiction story. The most entertaining will win Bplay’s two newest themes, Winter Wonderland (complete with animated snowfall!), and Christmas Zen.
Dzemis and Jason butted heads last week over the pros and cons of push technology, and its role in RIM’s direction. Thanks both for your input, and you’ll both be getting set up with free copies of Ascendo DataVault. Anyone else interested in picking up the password-keeping app can get it for 25% off by entering the coupon code BBCOOL72 at checkout, but just for a limited time. Thanks for participating, guys!
