    Somewhat tongue-and-cheek, but now that we have the .XXX designation available for web addresses, should RIM update it's keyboard to include the .XXX designation as one of the options that would appear when you tap and hold the .COM button?

    I'd rather they added .co.uk, at the very least for UK users.

    I would rather RIM expose the keyboard maps so we can remap everything on the keyboard as we wish.

    There are lots of site extensions they could have used.

    .con for financial services sites.

    .mug for online gambling

    are just a couple that come to mind.

    .xxx doesn't necessarily have to be porn sites...I imagine a lot of big brands will buy their equivalent .xxx domain to stop it being abused in fact :P

    Do heartily agree with the need for .co.uk to be added to the options though!

    Thought .mug was for tax sites...

    <sarcasm>Sure why not... the xxx industry is about the only thing keeping flash/flv alive. The PB would make a perfect partner with it's unwavering flash support.

    Personally, I'd like to see arrow keys added to the keyboard. Although it's probably not likely to work since I have the BB bluetooth mini keyboard and you still cannot move between cells in docs to go with the arrow keys.

    That was the whole point of the thread; it was too be silly - I was getting tired of seeing all the gloom and doom around here and wanted something that was entirely different, strange, and weird.

    As an aside, the poll is actually interesting considering that there is a lot of people who didnt even know you can press the .com button to get more options on the keyboard. So it might be silly, but perhaps it actually taught something new about the keyboard to some people.

    I like the idea very much. Hate to say it but every time I walk into a thread, there's always a serious "do this do that" talk. Urghhhh. Why don't we take 5 and smoke weed for an hour?
