But now a terrible mobile version of Bing was pushed onto my Storm. Seriously, stop it. Read More

    Verizon released the BlackBerry OS 5.0 update alongside the Storm2 launch date this morning. I just had to try it out as I had ranked the BlackBerry Storm as the worst phone ever made. I’ve only had the update loaded for about an hour so far, but everything seems slightly better including the reception, responsiveness, and the iPhone-like effects. I still don’t like the phone but… Read More

  • Storm Synth: Too many hands spoil the face

    So what are we looking at here? It’s a suspended, completely self-contained watch with nine hands that turn in wild abandon. The thing is inside a massive steel case and looks as cool as all get out. I’m not a huge Storm fan but this one seems to speak to me as a man who likes big watches. It costs about $170 on a steel bracelet and $199 on a “slate” bracelet. You can… Read More
