Gizmo Theme by Elecite With Rack System Application Access

View Comments

Gizmo is a newish theme from Elecite that has their trademark futuristic look and feel, and helps you get your most used applications up-front-and-center for convenient use. The Gizmo theme organizes your applications in a rack system with each icon spaced in a slot that can be rearranged based on priority. Also, Gizmo has a customizable icon dock at the bottom with 4 customizable icons and a dedicated clock spot. This theme is also wallpaper friendly with a trigger underneath the time that closes the rack and allows for an unobstructed view of the glory you’ve downloaded to your device.

More information about the Gizmo theme available from Elecite.

Also, for all you Elecite fans, be sure to check out their Storm 3 mock up. It’s “out there” and sort of unbelievable that RIM would go with a crystal, almost concept-phone style design.

Pixelated is a simple puzzle game that involves changing pixel colors in order to create a single solid color on the screen. The ultimate goal of the game is to clear the screen in as few moves as possible. Pixelated also features a cool achievement system, that encourages you to get perfect scores on every level.

Pixelated and Pixelated Plus have both been upgraded to version 2.1 adding support for the new BlackBerry Pearl 9100 and 9105. This version also adds an internal link for email support, as well as a few bugfixes.

Will Rogers’ Handset Protection Guarantee Program Blend?

View Comments

A little while ago Rogers announced its Handset Guarantee Program. Today, the program has officially launched and Rogers got Tom Dickson of BlendTec’s “Will it Blend?” to introduce the new service.

We have all had a lost or stolen device at some point and this new program will allow users to get a speedy repair or replacement if the device is within the manufacturer’s warranty period. Alternatively if your device is out of the warranty period by time or broken, Rogers can assess the problem and provide a quote for repair (to be completed in 10 days with a courtesy phone). The aim of the program is to have a new device ready for pickup in 3-5 business days or less. You can also choose a replacement device in exchange for another 12 months on contract.

Diabetes and Health Tracker for BlackBerry with iRecordit

View Comments

We’ve had several users comment/write-in inquiring about a good diabetes app and recently iRecordit has launched their BlackBerry app for tracking blood sugar. iRecordit asks the user to input certain data about their blood sugar and general health, and allows the user access to the visual representation of that data on their BlackBerry or via email to their PC or health care provider. This visual representation allows you to have a daily view of your glucose levels.

What’s missing from apps such as iRecordit is Bluetooth integration with an insulin monitor. I would like to see iRecordit partner with some large healthcare institutions to bring this sort of functionality because automating and avoiding data input will make this app even better and more effective.

Head over to from your BlackBerry browser or desktop to get a free OTA trial of iRecordit.

Pictures and Video of the BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider With OS 6

View Comments

The BlackBerry Bold 9800 Slider aka Mr T. aka the BlackBerry Talladega aka Ricky Bobby has shown itself in both picture and video form and it’s looking really nice. So far we’ve seen two devices, the clamshell and the slider, running 6, and they look to be a little more on par with the other consumer devices on the market right now. The slider is a cool form factor, but with both a touchscreen and a trackpad, you have to wonder if there is some redundancy.

In the above video, the user doesn’t touch the trackpad and instead relies on the touchscreen. This makes sense, because OS 6 seems very touchscreen-friendly, but it just makes you wonder what the use case for the trackpad is. It’s also good to see SurePress wasn’t in use here. While SurePress makes sense for typing, it does create for an awkward user experience, and I found it made the Storm2 experience a little buggy. Overall, this device looks like it still needs a little more time in the oven but it’s coming along nicely.

Kuwait and Pakistan Block BlackBerry Service

View Comments

BlackBerry is having some issues in Kuwait and Pakistan. In Kuwait, the Ministry of Interior is planning to stop BlackBerry Messenger. The issue is that BBM cannot be controlled by the Ministry of Communications or security authorities and hence, users of BlackBerry sets were taking advantage to spread rumors and call for strikes.

In Pakistan, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has also banned the use of all BlackBerry services “until further notice”. In addition, some 450 sites including Twitter and other social networks have been banned by the PTA. This is all on the heels of the massive Facebook ban due to “Everybody Draw Mohammad Day” that caused serious uproar in Pakistan.

Bad Behavior has blocked 42876 access attempts in the last 7 days.
