    Howdy from The Big Sky!

    After a month with a Samsung Omnia and a few years before that, I've rejoined the BB world. I gave up trying to like the Omnia mainly because I could never get on board with the touch interface. I also spent two years with the original MotoQ. That and a $20 8130 was hard to pass up.

    Previously, I had a 7130 (I think). Essentially it was the precursor to the Pearl with their first iteration of the SureType technology. I liked it then and I like it now.

    So I'm here to learn all that I can about BB, particluarly:
    - Tips, tricks, and things to optimize my experience
    - How to beat or fix the memory leak problem with the Pearl
    - Themes
    - Apps
    - Accessory reviews
    - Apple OSX integration
    - Google Calendar and tasks integration
    - And anything else that makes the BB so unique!
