    Is there a way to export my stock browser's bookmarks to my PC? I need to do a wipe and was hoping to backup bookmarks (which I have saved as thumbnails on my home screen) so I can restore them.

    Desktop manager keeps crashing during backup and there is no way to drag and drop application data (where I assume my bookmark data is). I have uninstalled all my apps and removed all my documents/media, but DM still crashes during backup. BB support cannot seem to help me. They are sending a new micro usb cord, but I don't think that will make any difference.

    Are there any work arounds available?

    That's a good question. I wiped mine and had to hunting for all my bookmarks again. This is one area where Android really smokes BB. With my Nexus 7 all your apps, bookmarks and settings get backed up to Google servers. I did a factory reset on it and everything comes back after setup.

    When you compare a 4.1 operating system to a 2.0 operating system you'll find that the higher and more established OS will "smoke" the younger and less established OS in many areas.

    I like the ui of qnx and I like were its going. Now just picture the PlayBook's OS in the 4.1 realm....Oh wait that would be BlackBerry 11!!!!!

    This would be a pain, but, email the bookmark links to yourself, then do your wipe, then retrieve your emailed links, launch them and resave to your "new" homescreen.

    Are there any other options out there? If I have to manually type in bookmarks and save to Google bookmarks or something similar, it will be a royal PITA

    have you tried digging through the file system to see if you can copy the files to a safe place and then just copy them back after the wipe?
