You all know I love my BlackBerry - so much in fact that even my mother has taken to saying, "do you have your crackberry?" before we go out together.
Clearly, I'm not surprised that CrackBerry.com, which is touting itself as the'Number One Site for BlackBerry Users and Abusers,' was launched this week. Believe it or not, the term "CrackBerry" was Webster's Dictionary New Word of the Year for 2006. Today, some nine million people own BlackBerries. What can you do at CrackBerry.com?
New BlackBerry owners will find the help forums and beginner's guide useful in getting the most from their device quickly. CrackBerry addicts will find it easy to always "get their fix," as the site boasts a growing supply of downloads (software, games, e-books, ringtones, themes and wallpapers) and accessories like Bluetooth headsets, carrying cases, and replacement batteries can be found in the CrackBerry.com store. "Crack Team" bloggers are integrated into the smartphone industry and update the site daily with news, rumors, reviews, helpful tips, humor and even celebrity BlackBerry sightings - you know I'm gonna love that.
Registered members looking to make social contact with other BlackBerry owners, can access the CrackBerry Connect portion of the site. There, members can post their CrackBerry profile and search other member profiles, and swap BlackBerry PINs - social networking for the BlackBerry population. For those who have taken their CrackBerry use beyond the point of healthy, the site offers a "Rehab Section" with both serious and humorous hints on cures for things like CrackBerry addiction and "BlackBerry Thumb."
