Join RIM and Grow a Moustache for Movember to Support Prostate Cancer Research


moustache contest

RIM is hosting a RIMoustache competition in the tradition of Movember to raise awareness and money for prostate cancer research. For those who aren’t aware, Movember is a campaign that asks men to shave their face November 1st, and grow a mustache to raise awareness for prostate cancer. The idea is to change your face to change the face of men’s health. Prostate cancer affects many men and in 2010, it’s estimated that 24,600 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 4,300 will die of it. This is a worthwhile cause.

Qwell Do Not Disturb App Now Available as a Both Free and Paid Service


Qwell is a helpful service that lets you set your phone to Do Not Disturb. If there is an emergency, the caller can press ‘9’ to push the call through if it’s an emergency. The company let us know that they are now offering two versions of Qwell: a free and a paid pro version.

Qwell Pro features a personalized Outgoing Message that lets you give the caller more detail as to why you can’t answer the phone. This is a great feature because often times people will call and ask the same question “why isn’t he/she answering?”.

You can upgrade to Pro for $2.99 Monthly. More details at the Qwell site.

Qwell also let us know that they are still running their on-going social media contest and are about 150 Twitter followers from giving away a Torch. Follow them at @QwellYourPhone for a chance to win a Torch.
