+Gordon Grieder January 3rd fast approaches - so this may be an appropriate time to mention that my Playbook just downloaded an OS update from RIM last week?

And perhaps it's in poor taste to bring up their documented plans to upgrade playbook to BB10 in the coming year :D

Oh bah. My calendar reminded me of the bet. Mark my words: RIM will cancel the Playbook within the week. ;)

You see the video with the guy who brought a marching band to hand in his resignation? Now that's an exit.

Rained rather firmly here. Oddly, the rain carried with it the strong smell of mesquite.

http://www.bbmnyc.com/ - yep, that's where I'm heading tomorrow. I've an idea for a new BBM platform app -- and if I get it to market fast enough I think it'll do well. This hackathon event - not to mention direct access to some RIM dev team members - should be just the thing to give it a nice kick start. (Nope, this is not a paid advertisement -- in retrospect I realize it reads that way; I just think it'll be fun in a geeky get-buried-in-hardcore-coding-for-a-couple-of-days kind of way ;) )
