Visible Vote is a BlackBerry app that everyone in Washington should have installed. The app allows you to write congress personal letters from your Blackberry, as well as vote on issues your legislators are voting on.

BlackBerrys stolen at summit meeting

Comments

A dastardly thiefA number of BlackBerrys went missing at the hemispheric summit meeting of representatives from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, reports The Swamp. A Mexican attaché, responsible for guiding the Mexican media around the premises, was caught on video absconding with “six or seven” BlackBerrys that were left on a table by members entering a meeting. White House press secretary Dana Perino said that the phones were definitely from members of the U.S. delegation, although she was unsure exactly who had lost one and whether they were from White House staffers. The whole thing is currently under investigation, so hopefully we’ll have more details soon.
