Mars Refuel - Review

I just tried Mars chocolate flavored milk for the 1st time and didn’t find any difference in the taste as compared to other cheaper chocolate milks available in the market. Its taste was fine but why to spend extra when you can get the same taste in a lot less.

Linkedin for BlackBerry smartphones updated - but we need more from it

LinkedIn

LinkedIn got a welcome update over the weekend to version 2.1.0.37 but unfortunately the improvements were pretty minor. The new features just include contact sync & login improvements and although this is a step in the right direction it isn't quite enough for me.

While it is great that we now have a LinkedIn application for BlackBerry smartphones it's still lagging behind in terms of functionality compared to the Android and iOS versions. What I need from the app is proper notifications. If I have the app on my BlackBerry I don't want to get and email telling me I have message - I want the app to tell me and give me a Splat.

    LinkedIn for BlackBerry smartphones updated to version 2.1

    LI

    Good news for you LinkedIn fans out there. The BlackBerry smartphone app has been updated to version 2.1 bringing some nice new features to the business persons social network.

    We have only had this new and improved LinkedIn app for about six weeks so it's great to see an update so soon. I would imagine that with the deep LinkedIn integration in BlackBerry 10 we may see further improvements to the BB6/BB7 version in the future.
