Palm Bitch-slaps BlackBerry in WSJ Ad Today

Posted By on Thu, Feb 14, 2008 at 11:12 AM


You might've heard that BlackBerrys nationwide malfunctioned on Monday. God forbid, but douchey CEOs were left without email for a whole three hours, during which they undoubtedly were forced to call people on the phone or visit them in person. This isn't the first time users have been burned - in April of 2007 BlackBerry experienced a 10-hour shut down.The spotty track record prompted Palm (the j.v. squad of PDAs) to slam their competitor in a full-page ad today, which closed with the kicker, "And more importantly, no nationwide blackouts." BlackBerry was reported to have uninvited Palm from its birthday party and taken all its toys back. -Andy Wright

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
