And now for a nice bit of nostalgia… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiUcVp6i1tM&feature=related Scott says: November 26, 2008 at 12:08 pm gah! … just realized you linked to http://wireandtwine.com/ Thanks! ^_^ Scott says: November 26, 2008 at 12:06 pm Yes, please Chris tell us where we can get that awesome shirt!

As of now, though, it’s just not that strong. karate: wireandtwine.com regularkarate says: November 26, 2008 at 8:04 am I want that shirt. I used to want to make it, but someone took care of it for me… where did you get it? SpikeDelight says: November 25, 2008 at 8:18 pm Hey I was wondering, would the ‘laggy menus and accelerometer’ be able to be fixed in a firmware update? I’ve used the phone a fair amount and I have to say it is noticeable, but it’s not like it’s inconsistent (as an example there’s a difference between a game consistently running at 25 FPS and one that’s at 60 but then it dips lower) and overall I enjoyed using it. It would be nice for the Blackberry to get on that though, and maybe add a ‘predictive typing’ thing like the iPhone.
