In this playful episode of the hellyeah! show, we discuss the recent BlackBerry service outage, the iPhone 4S and Siri, and Instapaper before Alan launches into a preview of this fall’s video game release lineup.
Check out the show notes after the break…
Welcome back, BlackBerry
- three day outage
- 12 free apps as compensation
- another embarrassing CEO video
- BlackBerry still can’t do IMAP, hello?
- a nice bump but not ground-breaking
- or is it? Siri is wildly popular, resulting in network issues for AT&T (shocker)
- STSS: http://s—hatsirisays.tumblr.com/
- what a personality!
- “save for later”
- nicer formatting, especially useful for mass transit commutes
- chrome extension: instachrome is my favorite
- comparison with Apple “Read Later” feature?
- new instapaper 4 iOS apps launched TODAY
