This is how my theme is supposed to look

This might not be news for anyone who is conscious of what OS they are running and have been tracking issues across each build, but more and more readers have written in asking me to expose an annoying theme bug. The above screenshot is a how my theme is supposed to look, with a black background and multi-color thread across the homescreen.

Comments

Zoompass have announced that they are now preloaded on Bell devices and users should start seeing the app on the homescreen shortly.

Zoompass Announcements Bring Us Closer to Mobile Payments

14 Comments

Zoompass have made several announcements today that position them as leaders in wireless payments. With the Zoompass Tag, and the Zoompass app for BlackBerry, the company is helping to push the industry away from paper and onto our smartphones.

The Zoompass Tag is a sticker that you put on the back of the device, allowing you to make payments by swiping your smartphone rather than a physical card. The 43mm by 33mm sticker is currently accepted where MasterCard’s PayPass is offered, such as Tim Hortons, McDonalds, Petro Canada and Loblaws.

Another initiative related to this venture is the news that TELUS are pushing the Zoompass BlackBerry app. All of the major Canadian carriers are on board, and we’re going to be seeing this app on more devices. The app can be used to send, receive, and request money, instantly and securely, on your mobile phone. While it’s free to register, there are still fees associated with the service.
