  1. BlackBerry’s CEO Would Totally Sell BBM for $19 Billion, Guys, If Anyone’s Into That

    It's official: every single human would rather have $19 billion than BBM—in case you were wondering.

    BlackBerry's totally relevant BBM messaging service went cross-platform, and sooo very many people were trying to sign up at once that they established virtual lines, which was definitely necessary. Surprisingly, BlackBerry's CEO now says he'd sell the super lucrative messaging service for the low price tag of "exactly the same as WhatsApp."

  2. BlackBerry Messenger Is Available for iOS and Android, but You Have to Wait Your Turn

    We thought the point of the Internet was not waiting in lines.

    It's a great day for BlackBerry users, as their beloved BBM proprietary messaging service has finally gone cross-platform. We tried to take the iOS and Android versions for a spin, but demand for accounts on the service is supposedly so high that there's a virtual line. Yeah, we were surprised, too.

  3. BlackBerry Users Will Finally Be Able to Talk With All Their Friends, BBM’s Going Cross-Platform

    Personal experience may vary, but most of the BlackBerry users I know all cite BlackBerry Messenger as a defense whenever someone says anything negative about BlackBerry. They really seem to love it, but the only people who have been able to use BBM are BlackBerry owners. That's about to change. This summer BlackBerry will launch versions of BBM for iOS and Android. You finally be able to message for free with your one friend who still owns a BlackBerry.

  5. Blackberry CEO Calls iPhone Outdated, Redefining Situational Irony

    Thorsten Heins, CEO of Blackberry, which was a popular business accessory back in the early 2000's, said in an interview he feels the Apple iPhone was outdated. This doesn't even count as a "pot calling the kettle black" situation. This is a whatever historically pre-dated the pot calling the kettle black, and it's awfully big talk coming from a company whose stock is trading at about three percent of Apple's.

  6. What’s in a Name? Research In Motion Officially Rebrands as BlackBerry

    The smartphone market pretty saturated at current. Folks can agree on that, right? Between Apple and Microsoft, there's a cornucopia of devices on the market right now. So, how does a company like Research In Motion move forward in this kind of atmosphere? Well, they announce a bunch of new phones, because of course. That's all fairly boring and standard, though. What's actually interesting is that Research In Motion has decided to succumb to peer pressure: They've changed the company's name to BlackBerry.

  8. National Transportation Safety Board Ditches Blackberries For iPhones, Hurtles Into 2008 Full Speed Ahead

    The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is the latest entity to jettison the Blackberry phones it has issued to employees for years, reminding people everywhere that RIM's increasingly maligned mobile devices are, in fact, still things that exist -- for the time being, anyway. For those of you still interested enough to be operating doomsday clocks for the company, you can safely move them a couple of minutes closer to midnight.

  9. RIM Releases Goofy BlackBerry Music Video, Somehow Warms the Cockles of Our Hearts

    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that BlackBerry, and by extension Research In Motion, hasn't being doing so well as of late. It's not news to us, and it's not news to them. However, being a company on the decline doesn't mean you're out of business just yet. They're still flailing about, trying to garner any attention that they can. It's into this environment that they have now released a video of their leadership team, er, singing to developers. Seriously.

  10. RIM Loses $147,200,000 in Patent Verdict

    In what continues to be a bad year, Research In Motion has now been ordered by a California jury to part with $147,200,000 due to patent litigation with Mformation Technologies. You see, back in 2008, RIM was sued by Mformation for infringing on their patent in regards to remote management systems for wireless gadgets.
