Road Testing Blackberry os v4.5.0.81

Well we took the plunge and installed the new OS for BlackBerry® 8310: v4.5.0.81 (Platform, we were running: v4.5.0.69 (Platform prior.

First thing we did was a backup of BB database and performed a backup of third party database.

For this test ran the device all day on one charge and using it as: main music source view Playlist (w/bluetooth stereo headphones), camera, texting, email, internet browsing, GPS & skype. Also running in the background is *memory cleaner .

*How to find Memory Cleaner. Go to >Options>Security Options>Memory Cleaning

The test went well, no problems with installed apps or browser functions. Here are a some photo's shot during the test. Had to restore some activation codes this is normal at times.

Found out that at 12% or so the network shuts down

no sms, BB messenger, calls anything involving your carrier, but the other functions on the phone still work mp3 player, camera, Bluetooth, making email drafts and so on.

Well I'm never really stranded for power i use this as a power backup

Simply insert a 1.5v AA battery in the charger and plug into your phone!
This charger lets you charge your phone's battery with regular AA batteries.

Now we are waiting to make the decision on what device is next for us: Bold or Storm.

Productivity with a Blackberry

When I first bought my Blackberry curve 8310 [ update: Now using Blackberry Storm 2 ] the goal was and still is to keep it simple, email, " I have four accounts pushed to my BB " & productivity with a little fun on the side, for me that's my music and my DVD collection, no games.

I wanted more from my BB today screen so I went with PocketDay Professional here is a look at my start/today screen:


Update to V5.5.0.3/os Base 4.5

on Feb. 18th 2009. UI basically the same, seems to take up a little more screen real estate, I must scroll down for: to do, missed calls & memos, that's o.k. Liking the fact it allows me to switch between my color preference in V5.4.1.6 to complete black background in V5.5.0.3 nice.

With PD you can assign up to 15 Mapped App hot keys, pretty good for quick access.

For Daily Alarms I use BBSmart Alarms Pro. I not only use this for "Alarms", I have one Alarm programmed for my German mp3 lessons triggered for the last 30 min. of our weekly workout.

For Daily reminders ZenMinder it allows me to set up all my reminders and alerts without having them added to my BlackBerry calendar. Keeping my calendar uncluttered with just the important information I need to focus on.

During our weekly workout to be sure we are spending the allotted time for jogging I have go time it, this is set for the total jogging workout time and has a nice function, Alarm Interval, so i have a tone /vibrate to go off at 20 min into the workout, to kind of have a mark to how we are progressing during our route, setting land marks on the way, also tone /vibrate for when we've completed our jogging time.

I use Google Sync to sync / share
His/Her Calenders + Sonic Warriors United Shows.

When multitasking sometimes you hate to leave a program to delete or just see who the incoming e-mail is from. I've installed a nice little app called peekawho it helps me keep my inbox clean & if something needs my attention i can jump to it from the pop up that it provides.

MessageScheduler mainly for posting *monthly emails a very handy app. * but if you do a battery pull, you have to reset the schedule for your posts.

When on the road i use
IM+ for Skype
mainly for chat at the moment, waiting for a BlackBerry with a function to do hand over calls over Wifi for the call function in this app.

Daily Blogging / Micro Blogging:

I'm using Blogger's email function to upload drafts of new blogs.

For Twitter I use Socialscope & TwitPic for photos within Twitter.

When I want to take photos off my Blackberry after a long weekend and away from the Pc + organizing them from my BB in our online photostream / sets I use Flickr for BlackBerry

Here is something I've recently started to enjoy, taking screen shots of my BlackBerry with CaptureIt. Here are some of my examples: Road Testing Blackberry OS here and for sharing on TwitPic Capture 1, TwitPic Capture 2.

So, this is how I get thing's done, I would like to hear from you on what you think and what's on your Blackberry, leave a comment, till then take care.

Studio Snacks, What's in the Bag?

Just received a nice supply of Walkers Chips. I've read it's best if you are working stationary, not to eat from a garbage bag size of chip/snacks, but to have your snacks in small portions.

So we are sorting this HUGE 28 Flavor bag of Walkers chips and rationing them between us. We ♥ the Prawn Cocktail assortment.

Just to give you the scale, that's The Jackofficers - Digital Dump Cd, Electronic Project that features: Gibby Haynes/
Jeffrey Pinkus of Butthole Surfers.

The Jackofficers is one of the Hundreds of Cd's i brought back with me this past summer, after buying Traktor Scratch
for the S.W.U. Tour. Still need to get the rest of my Cd collection from storage & convert them to Mp3 format, so many Cd's, HUGE task!

When flipping the Cd open i see I've marked, 5 trax out of 11, i played very often back in the day.

For my Radio show on WPRB 103.3 "The Metal Machine Music Show", it was tracks:

1. Love-O-Maniac

6. Swingers Club

9. Don't Touch That

For the Clubs it was tracks:

5. Do it.

8. #6

Re-listening to the Cd, It has the feel of Tack Head
with Butthole Surfers flavor, crazy fitting samples with Electronic twang.

Life Balance

Three (x) a week Jana Clemen & I workout to stay fit for our long weekends & Sonic Warriors United Show Schedule and to make the best of it
we bring along our

[**] BlackBerry Curve 8310 Image Hosted by

w/Bluetooth Stereo Headset (A2DP) function and our Motorola S9 Stereo headset's Image Hosted by for music and the occasional phone call while working out or in case an emergency call for a taxi if needed ;-)

[**] upgraded to BlackBerry 9520 Storm 2 and applying the same routine.

The playlist function in the Blackberry works very well, but it was not always like that, when we first bought the 8310 it came shipped with OS v4.1 and didn't have the function for playlist, so a third party music player w/playlist was needed, we waited. We didn't have to wait long before a OS update was released " Rock'n OS now"and the playlist function was added along with other features.

The playlist function is very important to us because we are able to probe selected bought Mp3's & ripped copies of our large Cd collection [ small example here ] to Mp3 format, for our Traktor
Scratch Dj program

Image Hosted by which we use in our performance along with 12" records.

Yes we are that breed of Dj's that adapted the technology & haven't abandon the 12" vinyl market.

We edit the Traktor Scratch folder on our Blackberries during and/or after our run, then copy the tracks to the Laptop Traktor Scratch folder and we're ready with electronic classics & new releases.

We try to take advantage of the little time we have to be as productive as possible. With all the little thing's life can throw at you during the week, sometimes you just don't have the time to troll through 12"s and Mp3's at the same time for a gig, so with the above items it makes this more of a joy to stay fit and on top of our game.

A few weeks back i was listening to National Public Radios Program: Science Friday, about the Cern-LHC, the world's largest particle physics laboratory, situated in the northwest suburbs of Geneva on the Franco-Swiss border, established in 1954 and how a Magnet Meltdown happened and delaying the project by a year.

Well, with any group project sometimes delays happen, but with good team work and focus on what the problems are, these delays are what bring out the best in the group, to focus and keep the project on course.

Image Hosted by

Now what does Cern-LHC have to do with music you ask, well the subject itself is amazing and a project that has twenty European member states, and is currently the workplace of approximately 2600 full-time employees, as well as some 7931 scientists and engineers (representing 500 universities and 80 nationalities).

Robert Henke of Monolake has put together a nice Sonic Signature dedicate to the Cern-LHC Project.

I really love the textures and the openness of this track. I looped the 7 min. titled song: Cern-LHC, you can download it from: Free Track of the Month [October 2008] here, to the 1:19:00 min. Stockshot HD 2008 video, that's just the way i am.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
