    --Gizmodo making fun of the people who are winners in the BB10 CrackBerry contest. Interestingly enough this is the same author who stated the Z10 was hotter than the iPhone.--

    A Woman Dancing In a Bikini and Four Other Stupid Things People Did to Get a Free BlackBerry 10

    Look people, I know the BlackBerry Z10 looks great, but I just can't believe that some of you are doing these stupid things to get one for free. Ok, five of you.

    And I really mean that. I can't believe it. I can't believe that some Deborah St. Pierre decided to dance and pose in a bikini. Or that this man—a Brian Heffren of Middletown, New York—got a freaking BlackBerry tattoo! That would be just beyond stupid, right? Like getting a Zune tattoo or something.

    So I'm inclined to believe this stupid contest is a seriously misguided and profoundly sad PR thing.

    Relax, kids. BlackBerry 10 is trending. Gizmodo wants page hits....so they write about it, and people like to read about stupid stuff. That is all.

    At least they managed to link back to a positive story rather than their usual link back to millions of negative ones. I'm not sure if they realise it's a fan site contest and nothing to do with RIM?

    So, Gizmodo figures that waiting in line overnight and still having to overpay for a piece of iRepackaged inventions is somehow better than a beauty in bikini and getting an awesome device for free? Who here needs to get a life, again?

    Well I am just soooooo happy that Samsung made know that the iphone headphone jack was moved to the bottom. My head almost exploded from that commercial. And I'm glad a Samung Galaxy S3, 4G LTE James Bond batman scotch Steve McQueen lamborgotti fasterossa fox mccloud (that's a mouthful), can use a new thing called nfc because my head exploded from that. Oh wait, I didn't care where the headphone jack was and my BlackBerry was able to do that before the S3 came out. Keep making cute commercials and go stand in line like teens at twilight... Because ive got real things to do

    Apple and Google are beyond scared of bb10. Make no mistake about it buddy was paid to make up stories. The propaganda machine is out in full force to brainwash the weak minded masses.

    Well, a cute dime in a bikini beats out these "dumb" antics every time. IMO.

    Haters gonna hate. All these tech sites have LOVED writing "Blackberry is dead" articles. And for the past few weeks we've seen them flip flop. "Oh this is the next best thing." "This could be a game changer." Puh-LEEZ. I betcha if it works out for RIM, the tone of their articles will change. If, heaven forbid, BB10 doesn't do well, they'll type up "Told ya so!" articles or just fall back into their Apple worshipping mode. Someone said it best in an earlier post, they write what gets them page clicks.

    Sam Roberts talked to Rachel, who was waiting on line for an iPhone 5 on 5th Avenue in Manhattan for no apparent reason. This woman is not a plant, she is a real person, and she is brilliant.
