New BlackBerry could tell friends you’re watching porn
Whatever you do on your personal time is personal, but it seems that a feature designed to help you be more social could actually be causing quite a lot of embarrassment.
Apple tops smartphone satisfaction survey

The results of a U.S. survey found that Apple is the brand with highest user satisfaction, while Canada's BlackBerry squanders at the bottom of the list.
Is the new BlackBerry Z10 really good?
Weeks after the new BlackBerry Z10 launched, some are wondering if the new smartphone is really any good.
According to various reports, the answer is yes. But the details are mysteriously unclear.
Should you get the new BlackBerry Z10?
With the official launch of RIM, er, BlackBerry's new operating system, many people have been wondering whether they should get a phone running the new BB10 operating system.
The answer is yes. And no.
There's a lot to consider and the answer isn't a black and white one. But this should help you make a decision.
But first, know this: Forget about the Q10. The keyboard/touchscreen hybrid phone won't be available for at least a couple months, and really – you're short changing yourself with a small screen. There's a reason iPhones and Galaxy SIIIs sell like hotcakes, and it's not because either phone has a physical keypad.
Should you upgrade if...?
You have a BlackBerry phone sold before Feb. 5:
Yes. Stop reading this and place your order right now. Pay whatever the penalty is to get out of your contract and upgrade your device.
If your BlackBerry is anything but the new phone running BB10, and you like your BBM and handheld device security, then yes of course, you should definitely upgrade to the Z10.
There's a good chance you might not even think the BlackBerry World ecosystem is limited with more than 70,000 apps – more than any other mobile operating system at launch.
You probably don't really care about app selection either if you're still using a BlackBerry Bold, so it's not like you'll think the new BB10 app selection is small.
Sure, using a large 4.2-inch might seem overwhelming. But then again, the internal combustion engine was a significant upgrade from the horse-drawn carriage.
With new software and gear, Blackberry plays catch-up, and no more
Today's the day: RIM unveiled the first phones running its new Blackberry operating system, BB10. It also rebranded itself as Blackberry. Will it be enough to save the company, though?
A BlackBerry addict's review of a Windows phone
By Emma Waverman
The satisfying click when my thumbs hits the buttons gives me an endorphin rush each and every time. My name is Emma and I am a keyboard addict.
We’ve been enmeshed for almost a decade. There was a time that I couldn’t imagine living without my BlackBerry, but lately I have been missing out on some of the fun extras of the newer smartphones — like a good camera. So when Microsoft gave me an opportunity to try out the Nokia Lumia Windows 8 phone for a month, I eagerly, cautiously said yes.
I am a fairly average phone user — I use it for searching, email, Twitter and as an actual phone (yes, I’m a “voice’ dinosaur) as well as for kid distraction purposes.
Preview: BlackBerry 10 helps RIM get up to speed, but is that enough?
Research in Motion’s new operating system, BlackBerry 10, offers vast improvements from the company’s previous mobile phone OS. While BB10 gets RIM up to speed with the competition, is it enough to make a splash?
I recently had a chance to spend almost an hour with a prototype touchscreen-only handset: Dev Alpha B. The RIM spokespeople were quite clear that this is still a non-production model I was previewing, and that there would be improvements before the Jan. 30 launch.
Review: RIM BlackBerry PlayBook 4G LTE
The tablet feels speedy and responsive with the extra horsepower from a new dual-core 1.5-Ghz processor pumping clock cycles behind a 7-inch display. This PlayBook also has 1GB of internal RAM and 32 GB of storage space.
As the name suggests, this PlayBook connects using one of the latest standards for high-speed cellular data – 4G LTE. Compared to using a traditional 3G connection, this tablet sings through webpages and scrolls easily through fat inboxes, with a network experience almost like a Wi-Fi connection.
RIM's last shot as Apple trounces it on home turf
It's official: Canadians like Apple's iPhone better than RIM's BlackBerry. Who would have predicted that? Well, pretty much everyone outside of RIM, probably.
