As the cyber world grows, so does the requirement for security personnel. One of the best ways to test security is to breach it — it's often hard to find a hole until something passes through it.

As the cyber world grows, so does the requirement for security personnel. One of the best ways to test security is to breach it — it's often hard to find a hole until something passes through it. The people who do this type of work are known as ethical hackers, and they are in high demand. Companies would rather have someone on their side breaching their security, rather than someone unknown or hostile. Maybe you've always fancied yourself a tech guru, or maybe you're just starting out. Either way, you're probably wondering how to get started down the path of cyber security.

The first BB Merah Putih built BlackBerry-branded device has slowly been making its way through the certification process for Indonesia.

The first PT BB Merah Putih built BlackBerry-branded device has slowly been making its way through the certification process for Indonesia and has now finally reached the final step, meaning its eventual arrival might not be that far off. At this point, there's plenty of rumored specs floating about, but no images have appeared for the device simply known as BBC100-1. As for those rumored specs, well, they've come from @rquandt previously, and @krispitech.

About a decade ago, we could push a single button and communicate instantly. Now, this feature has mostly disappered. What happened?

Gather round kids, and I'll tell you a tale of a time before text messaging was so ubiquitous, a time where a phone call was so easy, it only took one button… and man it could be annoying. Not the tech, the people.

I'm Michael Fisher, AKA MrMobile, and I relived the glory days of flip phones and push-to-talk (so you didn't have to). Join me as I recollect what was great about this feature, what people did to ruin it, and how you too can push a button to awkwardly interrupt your friends and co-workers.

A few thoughts before CrackBerry's coverage goes to Barcelona this week for BlackBerry Mobile's official unveiling of the BlackBerry "Mercury"!

*/ /*-->*/

The Final Countdown is ON! Our CrackBerry Coverage heads to Barcelona, Spain this week for Mobile World Congress and most importantly, BlackBerry Mobile's official unveiling of the "BlackBerry Mercury".

We know a lot about this new Android-powered BlackBerry, but there are still a few remaining secrets to be learned and a few big questions that by this time next week we should hopefully have answers to. When will it go on sale? What will it cost? And while "Mercury" has been a pretty epic codename, what will the actual name of the phone be when it hits the market? [Please, Please, Please call it anything but DTEK70]

While we've already seen a few hands-on first looks of the Mercury from earlier this year at CES 2017 (I'll re-embed MrMobile's here for your viewing pleasure), this will be our first chance to really play with the Mercury and see how it stacks up to BlackBerry phones before it.

The idea for this video editorial came to me while sitting on the toilet doing my "prep" for a colonoscopy. The realization? Compared to the past several years, the time smells right for a BlackBerry resurgence in 2017.

The timing smells right for a BlackBerry resurgence

Two weeks ago today I had my first colonoscopy. If you're reading this and ever had the procedure, you understand why poop was on my brain. While the colonoscopy itself was painless and really easy, the colon prep process is umm… errm.. memorable to say the least. You drink a litre of powder mixed with water over the course of an hour, and before you're through it you're on the toilet for the next two hours. Then you do it again. Fun. :/

So why all the poop talk? Because it was while sitting on the the toilet cleansing my colon that the thesis for this editorial actually popped into my mind.

Watch the video and see if you agree with where my brain is at. The general premise? When BlackBerry fell from graces and took a brand beating several years back, it was during a time when other mobile platforms and manufacturers were going gangbusters with their mobile device success (iOS/iPhone, Android/Samsung, etc.). Now in 2017, nobody is smelling quite as clean and fresh and anymore. And the BlackBerry brand no longer has a stench to it. A lot of that smell neutralized during the lead of up to BB10 -- when there was a lot of excitement for a BlackBerry comeback -- and if anything, in the past few years the BlackBerry brand has been fine, if not just slightly forgotten about in certain markets. In this video I make the case why 2017 is the year where we will see BlackBerry Smartphones get back into the purchase consideration funnel for both enterprise and consumers a like in a meaningful way.

This is the question I keep getting asked. And unlike BlackBerry of old, It's not an easy answer anymore (and saying BlackBerry is a Software company apparently isn't adequate enough to satisfy inquiring minds). Here's to finding the answer!

Since bringing CrackBerry Kevin out of retirement to celebrate 10 Years of CrackBerry and cover the hell out of the launch of the new BlackBerry "Mercury", I've quickly reverted to my old CBK habits. One of those habits is that nearly every conversation I have is in one way, shape or form related to BlackBerry.

As I mentioned in a recent editorial, the BlackBerry story is more complicated these days than it used to be. When it comes up in conversation, I explain that BlackBerry is now a Software company and that thanks to a partnership/licensing deal, we now have BlackBerry Mobile running the BlackBerry phones business (for most markets around the globe), including the launch of the new Android-powered Mercury.

What's interesting is that when I talk to "normal people" now about the new BlackBerry, they don't get it. The quickly understand BlackBerry Mobile, though. BlackBerry Mobile manufacturing, marketing, selling and supporting BlackBerry Smartphones makes complete sense. Then they ask the question - "So if BlackBerry Mobile builds phones, what does BlackBerry sell now?"
