Yes. I would replace WorldMate with TripIt. I used to use WorldMate for my itineraries but was forced to switch to TripIt when I got my Droid. (I was really upset that WorldMate wasn't available for the Droid at first.) I quickly found that I like TripIt much better and it has recently (within the last month I believe) been released for the BB so now I have the same thing on both my personal Droid and work BB.

Not a bad list. Some folks may have personal favorites that would lead them to favor Google Maps over BB Maps or vice-versa, etc, but overall it's a pretty decent list.

My only real gripe is a personal choice: I wouldn't use my BB as an e-book reader. I would bring my Kindle2 instead. One more thing to carry, but so much better than using the relatively tiny BB screen to try to read a book. Likewise, I carry a separate iPod for music. It's better at music, and it saves the BB's battery for it's main function: communications. I have no argument with the CIO list as it's constituted, just with the philosophy of using a BB for everything.
