July 15th, 2009

You know us; we have nothing for love for RIM but it seems that its case of ADD is a lot worse than previously thought. For the better part of a week we’ve been playing around with a new beta build of OS 5.0 and noticed that it has a new feature that has yet …

Opera tantalized everyone last week with its proclamation that the Norwegian company was about to reinvent the Web. We were skeptical at best.

Skyfire for BlackBerry gets shot up

We reported a little while back that Skyfire was testing a version of their web browser made for the BlackBerry with a “small friends and family” group of alpha testers.

Skyfire begins the hunt for BlackBerry alpha testers

April 11th, 2009

BlackBerrys are great for a lot of things but web browsing just isn’t one of them. The default web browser really isn’t all that suitable for anything more than WAP sites and, well, it’s painfully slow.
