30% Blackberry Blackout by Corporate and Enterprise – Bring Your Favourite Gear

As we Jamaicans say "Bad luck wuss dan obeah". It just is not Blackberry’s Year, people! First, they have no smartphones to begin with, as even RIM (Research in Motion) themselves have opted not to class themselves in that category, as really, there is nothing “smart” about their phones. Their Tablet, the RIM Playbook, got cursed both by bad design as well as by Telecom Operator O2 in the UK (United Kingdom), who rejected the Tablet due to, quote, “issues with the end to end customer experience” as noted in my article RIM’s PlayBook needs to become a Real Tablet.

Digsby: the good , the bad, and the useful

Hello everybody, its your favourite IT dude again with a brief rundown for one of the more popular chat software. Its called Digsby. Now mind you, its been around for a few years but I recently stumbled upon it. I always wanted to bundle my chat programs together (MSN, Yahoo, Facebook, etc) but couldn't find any way to do so without opening multiple programs at once. That is where Digsby comes in. It is so robust and easy to use, you will be wondering how you got along without it.
