Having a dual SIM phone is one of those subjects that more than likely doesn't get much thought, although many folk would probably like one. The concept is certainly not a new one and for years now dual SIM devices have been cropping up in some regions around the world, but it seems that it has never taken off with any of the top end smartphone manufactures as far as I'm aware.

Automate your everyday tasks with On Location

In this day and age being able to perform tasks quicker and easier is key. One employer of mine stressed the importance of "one less click" when devising a new task management system. From the developer that brought you SMSbyNow On Location is not as drastic as that but it is a headless application that performs specific actions when entering or leaving a location. While this is not a new concept to the platform, it certainly is a useful and interesting one.

Hemlock Grove's Famke Janssen isn't a fan of tech or selfies but still digs her BlackBerry Curve

Famke Janssen has had plenty of success throughout her acting career, starring in Nip Tuck, Taken, Taken 2 and perhaps most famously, as Jean Grey in the X-men series of movies and James Bond flick, GoldenEye but her role on Netflix's horror series Hemlock Grove is her latest work. As part of the promotion surrounding the shows second season, Famke sat down with USA Today to talk tech, even though she admittedly doesn't like much of it.

As noted in the interview, she's not on social media, she has an iPhone she's never used because of the touchscreen and she doesn't even have a TV. Which she does have though, is a bit of privacy, individuality and a BlackBerry Curve she's not really embarrassed to admit using. As for selfies, she's not a fan of those either and thinks they're a little intrusive on personal space.

New COO at BlackBerry another sign of software focus

Yesterday BlackBerry announced that they've hired a Chief Operating Officer. The company has not had a COO since John Chen took over and cleaned house.

Remember when Thorsten Heins brought in his own management team including COO Kristian Tear who had tremendous experience from Sony Ericsson and Ericsson? Or how about the co-COO structure that worked very well for BlackBerry during its hyper growth phase? They had Don Morrison covering carrier relationships (he was formerly an AT&T guy) and Larry Conlee (an ex-Motorola guy) who was in charge of manufacturing.
