Removing the logo from your BlackBerry 8800

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

See, I wouldn’t hate on Cingular so much as to completely remove the logo from my device. These folks have, though, and I’m more than happy to send pass along the tips. Forums user akgrown has put together a step-by-step to removing that aesthetically unpleasing Cingular logo using a simple list of tools.

Experiencing Phantom Status Light Syndrome?

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Guilty as charged, I think. If you haven’t heard of it, there’s an epidemic slowly sweeping all of us over called “Phantom Ring Syndrome” or even “Phantom Vibration Syndrome”. This is when we think we hear our BlackBerry device going off when it’s actually just laying there stagnant.
Well, a post over […]

2.OH NO!: GPS and the BlackBerry

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

If you missed the opening commentary for 2.0H NO!, check out last week’s column where I lend an insightful look into why BlackBerry addiction isn’t really that bad. I just don’t want to repeat myself, so have at it and come on back.
If you’re up to speed, let’s continue. With the release of […]

Missing Sync public preview released for BlackBerry

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Mac-folk, pay attention. Everyone else should, too - you’ll all be using a Mac in 10 years, anyway (you heard it here first). We’ve all been trying countless ways to sync up our BlackBerry devices with our Mac computers over the years and to no avail.
Finally, Mark/Space has released a “public […]

ThoughtPiece: The Pace and Perception of Technological Change

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

It has been noted that the pace of technological change is usually perceived to be slower in the short term but faster in the long term. It’s kind of like watching a plant grow: on a daily basis, it seems to go slowly, yet come back in a month or two and the results […]

E-mail 12-step program creator interviewed!

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Now how’s this for a story. Last week we shuffled along a story about a 12-step program for e-mail addiction that had been created by executive coach Marsha Egan. That same story went on to circulate a large press junket, including CNN, ABC News, and some other name-droppable networks.
Well, guess who […]

WallStrip touches on RIMM

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Thanks to one of pals Dave Mabe, author of the great BlackBerry Hacks (available now from Amazon for only $17.22 USD), for the tip. Last October, Wall Street satirists posted a video about RIM’s place on the stock market and commented on the device’s addictive nature.
Well, looks like there’s another one […]

RIM posts a status update… again

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Don’t worry, people. We’re nearing the end of these updates. The whole options-granting debacle that’s been following RIM since they announced their Q2 results in October will (hopefully - oh, please) be done on March 2nd when the company finally brings their numbers to the table. Just like the update they posted […]

Interview with the Clerk

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Apart from Cingular, one party that continuously gets the short end of the stick from BlackBerry-lovers are the wireless clerks that sell us our devices. Back in January, I tried my best to shed some light on the situation, but I figured what better way than to go to the source itself.
So, […]

Handango reports 2006 numbers for BlackBerry

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Better late than never, I guess. But for anyone concerned about the growth of the BlackBerry and it’s market, this should ease some worries. Handango has posted numbers for smartphone content in 2006, and BlackBerry, the little device that could, showed the most potential out of all other smartphones with the highest […]
