Posted by Echoes in RIM , icloud , blackberry , Apple


Let’s talk about why RIM’s Blackberry server outage was the epic Tech Fail of the year. Simply – because it was not only a tech fail, but a business fail.

Java on BlackBerry (& we don't mean the script)

Posted by redsaid in JAVA , Getting the BlackBerry wet , Cup of Joe , Coffee Spills on BlackBerry , Coffee Addiction , coffee , blackberry


Stellenbosch – The life of a gorgeous local communicator is hanging by a thread after a tragic – yet, in retrospect, rather inevitable – encounter with a cup of coffee.

Miss BiBi (full name BlackBerry) Bold had been in critical condition on a sundrenched windowsill of a farmhouse situated on the outskirts of town since having a horrific encounter with a steaming mug of java. The unfortunate accident happened way before the crack of noon on Wednesday morning. By Thursday, BiBi’s condition had deteriorated to such an extent that the device was urgently transported to a cellular repair shop in town.

Her guardian, local blogger Redsaid, was allegedly responsible. (Although several witnesses have already – and slightly too eagerly, if you ask us – issued sworn statements, gleefully saying that they saw her do it with their own eyes.)

Redsaid, who has recently taken guardianship of BiBi from her sister, is rumoured to be a hardcore caffeine addict.  “But don’t think you’ll catch her in local coffee bars or cafés. She’s far more insidious about it,” said an anonymous source claiming to be a close family confidante. “She’s the type that drinks at home. ALONE.”

Leaning in, the confidante... erm... confided: “She is the one who should be drying out right now, if you know what I mean.”

An investigation into Redsaid’s sordid past has revealed a disturbing trend. “This woman has a shocking track record when assuming guardianship of electronics. Various devices, from cameras, to smartphones, to not-so-smartphones... have reached awful endings while in her care. And a few of them were still so young, they were hardly out of their boxes!”  revealed yet another anonymous source.

At the windowsill, a visibly upset Redsaid was constantly seen by BiBi’s side, regularly checking the handset’s vitals and incessantly knocking back mugs containing an unidentified beverage that had a distinct, suspiciously coffee-like aroma.

She was too distraught to comment, but the thumb on her right hand - the one that she uses to controll BiBi’s trackball - was twitching forlornly.

South Africa’s Deputy Communications Minister Obed Bapela says government is considering decrypting BlackBerry messages "if crimes are committed using the BlackBerry service".

Codes of the mobile future

Posted by Howie2.0 in qr codes , mobile , iPhone , immediate , Data , Convenience , cellular , blackberry , barcodes


QR (Quick Response) codes are 2D barcodes and one of the innovations promising immediacy in data retrieval. They work in a similar way to the barcodes used in retail – where they are used to store product quantity and prices, except QR codes can hold much more data.

“Dumbphone” of the season: Vodafone 555 Blue

Yes, I know the general term for WAP enabled phones these days is “smartphone”, but after doing some research on the Vodafone 555 Blue, I had to borrow the term “dumbphone” from Tech Crunch’s Chris Velazco.

MTN Bastards

Posted by in torch , repairs , MTN , broken , blackberry , .replacement

So my Blackberry Torch packed up. Last night it was all magical and perfect, this morning the screen is a horrible red mess of pixels and other unidentifiable shit. The trademark "Do a battery pull" advice didnt work after 13 tries, so I had no option left but to phone the Alimighty MTN.
