Can BlackBerry Take The Lead Again?

(image from

I was pumped after seeing this BBDoodle created by showing a Rambo like BlackBerry making revenge to topple down all the leading smartphone and tablet brands. :) This is after of the latest released new ipad of Apple that is somewhat a "nothing's changed" from the ipad 2.

According to many, now is the best time for RIM/BlackBerry to release a new product that would attract users like me. They should give a big improvement to Playbook.

One of the so many comments of the article in that I like:

I would like to see a larger option for the PlayBook: NOT ipad dimensions - which are ugly imoh - but just a scaled larger version of what we have now. Indeed, something as simple as a 1920x1080p size/form factor. A professional 1920x1080p tablet with optional keyboard could be a virtual replacement for a laptop, especially with remote-server capabilities taken into account.Don't get me wrong, the current PlayBook is on the right track, but with some vision and daring RIM could really shake things up. I hope someone at RIM is reading this :-)

I concur ishamid. This message should reach to their CEO Thorsten Heins. I have previously posted something about the appointment of Heins as CEO hoping him to make RIM better again. I'd like to make a repeat of my kinda appeal and that hopefully RIM will be back on its feet, soon

Is Your Spectacles Spectacular?

What is life without this?

I think it would be very difficult eh?! In behalf of my generation and to the generations to come, I would like to say thank you to whoever invented this one of the magnificent inventions that we are having now.

It is not written who in particular really invented this but it was made popular by an American entrepreneur named Sam Foster in 1920's.

For decades, design and looks of it evolved and continually giving us protection, comfort and fashion. One day at work, I was tempted to steal some seconds of my time and took this BB pic. I just love my new shades. :)
