iMore show. CrackBerry Kevin. Tonight. 6pm PT / 9pm ET. Be here.


I just finished watching. I just got my iPhone 5 today, moving from the 4s, I like it, but must say I can't wait for bb10, it'll be a game changer.

I haven't listened to it yet, but I don't see any purpose for it except for the traffic it might draw due to its polarizing effect(iPhone fanboys vs. BB fanboys). It's always a good draw and Kevin uses this tactic often on Crackberry. I think they call it "Linkbait"! Reminds me of Fox News or Glen Beck etc.

I listened to the show today and Kevin struck me as a whiner with his complaints, some of which are moronic.

He's upset because IOS doesn't automatically switch to cell data when the hotel wifi drops out overnight. Dude, I don't want my podcast catcher using up my cell data limit for the month in one night.

He's mad because Dropbox won't continuously sync in the background. Oh, so it can use up the battery when you forget to close the app? And then he'd probably complain about that.

He's mad because he missed a flight because he set the alarm wrong and it didn't warn him. Seriously? Your phone is not your mommy. Pay attention and use it properly.

He doesn't like the built in IOS alarm. Neither do I. Oh, wait. There's only 100s of alarm clock apps to chose from, many of which are free.

It just went on and on... Look, I have a Blackberry for work, and it's a POS. It's only redeeming feature is how well it interfaces with the company Outlook BES. But I hope BB10 is a great product, because it will push IOS, Android, Windows Phone, etc to sharpen their products.
