We have seen a dramatic increase over the past couple of years in government officials using social media to reach out to constituents. In Canada, MPs were not able to download the Twitter and Facebook applications, likely due to security concerns, but the House of Commons recently gave MPs and certain political staff the go-ahead to download Twitter and Facebook apps on government-issued BlackBerrys.

BlackBerry World Session Catalog Now Live

Comments

former WES conference

The BlackBerry World Session Catalog is now live and it looks like this conference, despite the rebrand, is still very much geared towards large enterprise. This makes sense as RIM will likely save the more consumer-level news and sessions for the BlackBerry Developer Conference, which is conveniently located in San Francisco. This year’s conference is focused on business, IT, and development needs, as well as the tablet’s impact on the office of tomorrow.

The idea of wearing glasses to view 3D is a little lame, but again, it’s just a concept app. Read more about it from Inside BlackBerry.

QNX Software Syncs Up Concept Corvette with BlackBerry PlayBook and More

Comments

The QNX OS is a versatile platform and while we have seen the PlayBook pairing already, it’s even better to see it in a super-charged car such as a concept Corvette. WIRED took the concept Corvette for a spin and showed off how the car can sync with a PlayBook tablet, BlackBerry smartphone, iPhone and internet services with the car’s own electronics. If you spend a long time commuting, it wouldn’t be a problem getting stuck in traffic with this many gadgets.
