Developping Blackberry Applications

Few months ago, I got myself a Blackberry Storm. It is a neat little device whose main fault is essentially the fact that it is not an iPhone. It’s essentially a hybrid. On one hand it tries to be more … Continue reading

It’s funny, but no one at my work got one yet, but they don’t seem to be able to shut up about it. As sweet as it might be I’m definitely not getting one because: I have Verizon I don’t … Continue reading
