Blackberry Messenger for you, BBM for me, BBM for everybody! [updated]

Its Saturday September 21, 2013 the day that was everyone that was an early adopter of smartphones back in the day had hoped for. The day that BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) would be a cross platform messaging application for Android, iOS and obviously Blackberry. What about windows phone you ask.. What about it???? I respond.. Today is the beginning of that dream as Blackberry announced that today would herald the launch of the Android BBM application and tomorrow would be the launch of the iOS application. I got the application about 7am this morning via an apk leak and began testing I recovered my blackberry id from my far gone days spent in blackberry land. Logged in setup my profile and then realised I have no one to test it with and I wanted my first test to be truly cross platfor...

Buzz Launcher oh how we love you

The Past of themeing Lets do a little back tracking to why I love this applicaiton. Remember back in the day on your old Windows XP machine you’d get really bored of the three color scheme’s that were possible, blue, olive-green and silver. So many choices... full of win it was… NOT! Back then my inner nerd struggled to be an individual, so I needed applications such as Style XP or Aston Shell so when chicks saw my laptop screen’ they’d go "but its sooo prettyyyyy" though I’d just smirk and nod thinking “I’m so in there”.

Long time Mactivist Kevin Rose of Diggnation and Milk Inc Goes Android

Long time "Mactivist" Kevin Rose of Digg.com and Milk Inc Goes Android with the Galaxy Nexus. He stated in a recent post on the Google Social Networking Platform, Google +:   "Excited to get his android phone this week - Going Nexus!" see here. If your one that has seen any of the Diggnation podcasts hosted by Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht you would know why I used the term "Mactivist" to describe Kevin. The man is totally immersed in the Apple culture, I think he's owned every iPhone and seems to own a couple different flavors of the Macbook Pro and of course an iPad. So this does seems surprising that he wants to switch.. In a previous Google + post he did state that he was impressed with a demonstration he got of the nexus and that has apparently swayed him to the Android side of the ...

The iPhone 5 and iPad 3 will not have a home button

Editor’s Note: This article was sent in by our newest Geezam.com author Gladstone Taylor the first week of July. For some strange reason Gmail’s spam filters nuked it and never showed up in my inbox and went unnoticed in the spam abyss until earlier this morning when Taylor brought it to my attention after seeing similar articles on other tech blogs. This is unfortunate as articles like this are exactly whey Geezam.com was started so that it could offer insight and experiences from real tech enthusiast and consumers with first hand experience using products and services. Better late that never but I just thought it was worth pointing out that Taylor and by extension Geezam was probably one of the first blogs to predict this development – Kelroy Brown Editor-in-Chief - Geezam.com The i...
