Hankering for a KEY2 running BB10 OS? Too bad, it's never gonna happen. Here's the next best thing.

You guys have been around the block. You've been using BlackBerry devices for years, and sometimes the nostalgia kicks in. Maybe you found a dusty Bold 9900 kicking around in storage, or you got to reminiscing about the old days with folks who used to have a BlackBerry. You've got the new KEY2 or KEY2 LE, but part of you wants to go retro. Luckily, you don't have to fire up your old Passport and cross your fingers hoping that BIS still works. There's a lot you can do to Android to make it look and feel like the BB10 experience of yore.

Although Research In Motion was founded in 1984, the first device to carry the BlackBerry name, the BlackBerry 850, wasn't released until January 19, 1999 meaning today marks its 20th birthday.

Although Research In Motion was founded in 1984, the first device to carry the BlackBerry name, the BlackBerry 850, wasn't released until January 19, 1999 meaning today marks its 20th birthday. To celebrate the occasion, The Record wrote up a fantastic article covering a lot of the history of BlackBerry with a focus on their ups and downs, history, and plenty of comments from those who were around at the time including former RIM employee and current Mayor of Waterloo, Dave Jaworsky.

BlackBerry CEO John Chen has been all over the place recently. Attending CES 2019, posting up new blog posts on LinkedIn and most recently, sitting down with RBC Disruptors moderator John Stackhouse to discuss BlackBerry's Big Pivot.

BlackBerry CEO John Chen has been all over the place recently. Attending CES 2019, posting up new blog posts on LinkedIn and most recently, sitting down with RBC Disruptors moderator John Stackhouse to discuss BlackBerry's big pivot. If you weren't able to catch the video earlier or be there live, you can now watch the replay.

BlackBerry — more innovative than ever.

From being the most valuable company on the TSX in 2007, to rapid, unexpected losses and plummeting share prices, BlackBerry has been through it all.

Enter CEO John Chen, who is reinventing the company by pivoting away from the competitive global hardware and handset market, and focusing on the strengths that were always key differentiators for the company — software security and privacy.

BlackBerry now offers enterprise security and privacy services to power the Internet-of-Things, including the automotive industry, healthcare, utility companies and government.

Chen has stabilized the company's financials and shifted its strategy. Now investors are ready for the company's next phase — growth. Join us to find out what's next on BlackBerry's agenda.

You'll have to set aside some time to take in the full conversation, but it's worth it given it seems as though John had some fun with it and was more relaxed with his answers surrounding everything from pivoting to software, security, and privacy, to the power of the BlackBerry brand.

Back in December, before the holidays, BlackBerry rolled out refreshed versions of the BlackBerry Hub Suite in beta. Since then, things have been understandably quiet, but now with the holidays wrapped up, new builds have started to flow.

Spotify has now started rolling out a new Car View mode for Android, which when connected to Bluetooth in a vehicle, offers simplified controls and views of the app to make everything easier (and hopefully safer) to control.

Spotify has now started rolling out a new Car View mode for Android, which when connected to Bluetooth in a vehicle, offers simplified controls and views of the app to make everything easier (and hopefully safer) to control.

Not everyone is seeing Car View yet, but over at Android Central, they're seeing it on Pixel devices, and my BlackBerry KEY2 currently has it enabled by default as well. With it enabled by default, it will automatically show when Spotify connects to your vehicles Bluetooth. You can disable it in the settings, or you can disable it until the next time it connects to Bluetooth.

Spotify can already tap into Android Auto and Car Play but if you're working with a car without either of those, built-in Bluetooth only or using a Bluetooth adapter, this is a sweet addition to the app. Have you checked it out yet?

Verizon called. They said they want you as a customer.

Save money.

Starting on January 17th, select Verizon Wireless subscribers will get Apple Music for free. The offer is extended to users Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited plans. Typically, Apple Music costs $10 per month, but those lucky customers will be getting the service for exactly $0 extra. It'll be bundled in with your plan and won't change or end until your plan does.

It's worth noting that Above Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited plans are some of the network's most expensive. However, if you have a Go Unlimited plan, you're not going to be left out entirely. You can get a six-month trial of Apple Music for free. That's twice as long as the usual free trial.

Apple Music gives you access to 50 million songs with no ads. You can download the tracks to play them offline, listen across all of your devices, and get exclusive and original content. Getting all that for free sounds like a pretty great deal to me.

In December, they allowed iOS users to revert to the traditional chronological order and now, they have rolled out the same changes to Android.

As it always should have

Back in 2016, Twitter decided to switch to a new algorithm that no one really asked for. The change meant you would often see tweets that were days old or from people you didn't even follow. In December, they allowed iOS users to revert to the traditional chronological order, and now, they have rolled out the same changes to Android.
