    Scrubbing

    One handy feature of the OS is the scrubbing after wiping feature.

    RIM defines it as the following -

    "the process of rewriting over memory to remove any residual unmapped data on the BlackBerry device. The scrubbing process could take up to several hours."

    I am still trying to find out the exact details of scrubbing, as it is still a bit hazy, would love to post the exact method used.

    i like this part -

    "Note: Once scrubbing has been triggered, there is no way of stopping it. The process must be fully completed before the BlackBerry device may be used. Removing and reinserting the battery of the BlackBerry device will only start the scrubbing process again from the beginning.

    The duration of the scrubbing process depends on factors such as the actual processor speed of the BlackBerry device, the amount of memory that it has, and the actual memory speed."

    Never really heard of it, sorry, but I am curious.
    I did bunch of stupid stuff to my phone but never came across this stuff.
    How do you get your phone to start scrubbing.

    Default Which Tooth Whitening Products!

    Hello People,

    Looking for information about what is the cheapest tooth whitening goods to purchase?

    I find it is rather hard to source the correct information as far as I can see. this person tells you one thing and a different place tells you something completely different!
    And, I thought the easiest thing to do is get practical information from you people as you could have personal knowledge re these things.

    Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance folks.
