Just went to the site and signed up for updates. How do you like this for the 'required' information to sign up:

"I would like to receive information on BlackBerry products and services" is a required field.

I didn't check the box the first time, then it came back and told me it was required?!?

I'm returning from the Gartner IT Expo Symposium today. 7400 Sr. IT people including 1900 CIOs. RIM had two Playbooks - encased in a plastic block, that could not be touched or used. No demos. Nothing. And they knew they screwed up. Every month they fall farther and farther behind.

I signed up for updates, don't really mind getting e-mail updates from Blackberry. Big like for your earlier post kinda of curious about the prices myself. Retired, so hopefully prices won't be ridiculous.

Replace HDD with SSD drive - 10second bootup = No waiting for applications to do tasks you're expecting in 1st quarter of launch, No waiting for API's, Conduits, and features for LAN, VPN for Intranets sites/Sharepoint access, etc for workload you can catch up on.

Take care of that rib. But I think you'll need either a guard or some kind of protection as we all love "babyback babyback ribs" ;). j/k.

Why even show up? Wonder how much that cost them to sit on their duffs.
