RIM launches official BlackBerry blogs for users, developers

Two new blogs will keep users and developers up to date on BlackBerry news and information

Always looking for new sources of information on everything-BlackBerry? Yeah, me too. And today I've got some good news. BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM) has launched two official blogs for BlackBerry enthusiasts: Inside BlackBerry, "The Official BlackBerry Blog" for the general BlackBerry Community; and the BlackBerry Developer's Blog, which is specifically aimed at BlackBerry software developers.

Inside BlackBerry isn't exactly "brand new"--it first launched last spring. But it does seem to be getting a bit more attention from Waterloo nowadays. Visitors can expect to find everything from BlackBerry how-tos and tips and tricks to RIM event coverage on Inside BlackBerry. And it's staffed by a "team of smartphone experts, each focused on a particular feature," according to the blog.

The BlackBerry Developer's Blog is brand new, and it'll be maintained by RIM's Director of Developer Relations Mike Kirkup and his team. The blog's first entry just went up yesterday and today Kirkup's already posted another great tutorial on ways to embed media within applications.

You'll still want to keep my BlackBerry Bible bookmarked, but there are certainly worse places to pick up BlackBerry-related news and information than RIM's official blogs.

Oh yeah, shout out to my man Douglas Soltys, aka The Douglas, aka @tron, who was recently tasked with making sure the Inside BlackBerry folks keep the blog interesting.

Visit both Inside BlackBerry and the BlackBerry Developer's Blog for more information.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
