Some of the challenges also present a geographical disadvantage. i think it be sweet to get a pic with the CEOs showing CrackBerry on their phone, realistically speaking youll need to go to Waterloo to make that happen...10:1 says the person who does this wins automatically based on the point difference.
Even some smaller challenges like the mall shot...hard if you dont live near a mall (there are people who do live in rural parts of the US)
Overall though you can never make a challenge like this 100 percent fair for everyone so you do what you can to try and make an even playing field as much as possible. i do wish you could upload photos from your computer though....
EDIT: Do not know how this post jumped to the near top....I posted this around 11:08AM, go figure...

This should be stickied. Just sayin'. Maybe a permalink on the front page? One that's not in the blog post, I mean.

This is pretty cool!
I'm having one issue though, in order to snap a pic of your blackberry, you really need to use another blackberry. Since you have to take the pic from within the app, you basically have to take pics of other peoples' BBs for all the missions. Make sense?I got thanked by Crucial_Xtreme. I am honored.

Yeah, it seems kinda hard to get some of these shots unless you carry around another phone or camera.

Unless its a mistake, someone already has 59400 points! How accurate is the leader board?
Ah well... I do a couple for fun anyway. I used my same Crackberry username.
EDIT: NM, just reread the blog post.

I don't really care about the points, but I am doing the iNvasion one for sure. This is where you go to an iStore and load up as many CrackBerry web pages as you can. I think this is just hilarious !!!

The bugs in the App are killing the fun.... It seems either their servers can't handle the load, or the app is buggy as anything. I was able to get 3 pics up and now can't, after 2 battery pulls and about 20 tries, nothing. Uncaught exception, application is not responding.

First pic I tried to capture hard-locked my device on the camera, failed to capture the pic, and made me do a battery pull.
