Blackberry maker rim changed its name to BlackberryBlackberry maker rim changed its name to Blackberry here's why.

IN a very suprising move this morning,

blackberry maker RIM changed its name to Blackberry!

Research in motion once the top notch company in the telecom world did so in a suprising move this morning. Perhaps blackberry maker RIM changed its name to blackberry because of of its popularity in emerging markets?

Here is what the CTO had to say about why blackberry maker RIM changed its name to blackberry.
Before unveiling the software on Wednesday, CEO Thorsten Heins talked about the company's major changes over the past year.

"We have redefined ourselves inside and out," Heins said. "RIM becomes BlackBerry! It is one brand, it is one promise." The audience murmured loudly after the name-change announcement.

While I am almost certain that Blackberry maker RIM changed its name to blackberry because a lot of its uses many of which are not in the US, actually did not know

Research in Motion made the Blackberry phone!


In other news relating to why blackberry maker RIM changed its name to blackberry, the new Blackberry 10 just got revealed too!

 

According to CNN

The company has already said BlackBerry 10 will run on a smaller number of devices and include essential smartphone features like a much-improved camera, a modern Web browser and social-networking integration.

BlackBerry 10 will launch with 70,000 apps, which RIM executives said is "by far" the most for a first-generation platform.

Will you buy the latest blackberry 10? Or if not are you content with your current blackberry? Was the name change reallly all that important ? Would it not have been betty to focus on building amazing products? The company is certainly taking a major risk. The reason I say this is because should blackberry phones fail, then the company is forever branded with a failed name. But then again should it succeed then it will be known as a successful brand.

This is so not right! The teen heart-throb was apparently taking pictures with fans at some  event in Miami when he seems to have casually placed his hand underneath the girl's boob, his other arm wrapped gently around her shoulder.
The girl in question is seen smiling awkwardly in the image - which was later posted in a photo gallery on his fan club website BieberFever.Com before being removed.

So, IN THE WORDS OF TOKE, here are some ways to know if you are a side chick!
  • He doesn’t answer your calls
  • He is MIA during weekends and public holidays
  • He doesn’t want to label your relationship / He hesitates to introduce you to people as his “girlfriend”

December 21, Du Guanghua, a businessman who ran a steel wire mesh business in Zhejiang Yongkang City Hardware Town, apparently  invited his employees to spend the Winter Solstice by having dinner together. 


When an employee supposedly drank too much alcohol lost his footing while relieving himself by the river, billionaire boss [employer] Du jumped into the river to rescue him, but unfortunately perished. December 25th, quite a few city residents came to the scene of the incident to offer flowers to Du Guanghua.

Nigeria’s reggae legend, Majek Fashek who is currently being managed by A-Plus Entertainment, a record company which rehabilitated him last year is hospitalised at the moment.
He was allegedly abducted recently by one of his friends who wanted to lure him into signing concert deals outside the shores of the country.
The CEO of the outfit, Hajia Oluremi Dangaji disclosed this ugly development to Showtime, during the week.
According to her, Majek who was due to drop his latest album this week, disappeared from his Gowon Estate apartment since last December without traces.
However, after futile efforts to trace his whereabouts, the reggae legend  resurfaced few days ago, loo
king haggard, weak and pale.
Narrating Majek’s ordeal, Hajia who claimed that her company had spent over N35 million to get the reggae master back on his track, said “This meeting is meant to formally intimate you with my company’s project with superstar, Majek Fashek whose latest album is finally ready for the market.
Unfortunately, just as we were getting ready for the release scheduled for this month, we got a shocker during the past holidays that he had been kidnapped and taken to an unknown destination by people suspected to be enemies of progress.”
“While the nightmare lasted, Majek’s former manager called to inform us that he was hospitalised in Lagos. But later, we found out that he was whisked away by one of his friends, to Ghana, who wanted to force him to sign concert deals outside the shores of the country without the consent of his management company.”
Haija said, while in Ghana, Majek’s conscience did not allow him to do the bidding of his captors, as he decided to return to the country.
At the moment,  she said, Majek has gone back to his old lifestyle. “He has become a shadow of his old self, breaking bottles and behaving very abnormal.

Malik Obama, president Barack Obama's older half-brother, announced he will run for governor in the Kenyan county of Siaya.
The elder Obama announced his candidacy as an independent in a rally on Sunday.
"Siaya county is facing a lot of problems from poor infrastructure to poverty due to bad leadership. I will change this if elected,” Obama said.
Kenyans will head to the polls on March 4 to elect a new president and parliament as well as regional representativess. Kenya is hoping to avoid a repeat of deadly post-election violence that broke out after a national vote in 2007. Fighting over the 2007 election results left hundreds of people dead and displaced hundreds of thousands across the country.
Violence related to the upcoming election has already erupted this year, however. Abbas Gullet, the head of the Kenya Red Cross, warned that by August 2012 at least 200 people had already died in pre-vote violence.
"It's about governorship, it's about senator-ship, it's about members of parliament, and women representative, and boundaries of communities that have co-existed for centuries," he said. Gullet added that two out of the four Kenyan elections since 1992 have been marred by violence.

And to prove how serious his search for a life partner is, the Nollywood phenomenon has taken his case to God in supplications.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with EE, the Imo State-born entertainer who was raised in Aba, the commercial nerve centre of Abia State, disclosed that he would like to settle down this year with his missing rib.

“But the challenge is that I do not know whom to marry. I’m not really searching per se, of course, I have many female friends and fans. Some of them intimate, but picking the person I will spend the rest of my life with is what is delaying my settling down. God will help me decide soon, because with Him all things are possible.”

On how soon he is expecting to hear from God on the choice of a life partner, Iheme, who still laments the death of his dear father, refused to give details.
Best dressed stars in our opinion at yesterday's golden globe awards were:

Kerry Washington, perhaps because we are just partial to her because of our favorite show SCANDAL!!!
Kerry Washington came out Decked out in a rhinestone-embellished semi-sheer nude Miu Miu dress, she proved that she’s very much on a roll.
Opting not to go the frothy princess route, her modern look with a sleek silhouette was styled with nude Prada pointy pumps, a satin Prada clutch and a diamond Fred Leighton bracelet. Very much like Olivia stone
Flawless makeup and a shoulder-length lightly highlighted ‘do completed her look.
And Halle berry!!

BUSINESS NIGERIA! NIGERIANS  ARE BIG SPENDERS IN LONDON.

If you need any indication that Big business Nigeria is definitely booming; then look on further than London. What is the correlation between Business Nigeria and London you may ask? Well it all has to do with the rise of big Nigerian spenders in exclusive shops all around London this past holiday season.

nigerianbigpsenders-naijagal

Thanks to Business NIgeria, the country has surprisingly become a major contender in recent times as a big spender in the international market. Nigerian international shoppers surpass even the United States  as a top spenders in London. Nigerians rank third in top international money spenders List in the UK. Falling just right behind China and the Middle East(according to the CNN report).



According to the UK's Office for National Statistics,
Some 142,000 Nigerians visited the UK in 2011, spending an average £107 ($172) per day. From January to September last year, Nigeria's tax-free spend in the UK grew by 11% year on year, according to tourism services provider Global Blue.

The trend has not gone unnoticed by UK retailers. Some of which have responded by tailoring their offerings to their growing Nigerian customer base.

"More recently we're starting to introduce a lot more niche brands," says West. "We've worked in collaboration with some very popular Nigerian brands," she adds. "I think it's not only important to demonstrate we can bring the big brands such as Louis Vuiton and Chanel, but we can also really appeal to more of a niche market too."

What is even more interesting about business Nigeria moving into the UK is terms of a partnership. There is a partnership between Selfridges and Creative development agency Style house files.

This is because selfriges aims to get a better understanding of their customer. In the case of style house file designers, it will give business Nigeria  fashion designers a further link into foreign customers. That is why they have instituted the Ndali fashion sector at Selfridges.

 
According to Punch!

His steady rise in the entertainment industry, specifically in the comedy business has been as a result of his versatility and dexterity at being able to churn out comic materials from everyday happenings. No doubt, things are definitely looking up for Bovi Ugboma, one of the most brilliant comics around as the comedian who has since spread his tentacles to the acting world has joined the growing number of entertainers who own Range Rover SUVs.




The Delta State born indigene who came into lime light via AY’s ‘Who wants to be a billionaire,’ a comic replication of the original show, ‘Who wants to be a millionaire,’ launched his used car shortly before the yuletide season to the surprise and admiration of many.
