PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android and iPhone users [...] will also experience BlackBerry's ad content in the form of mobile takeovers starting the week of March 25. Those mobile takeovers will fill your screen with what looks like a BlackBerry 10's, demoing a specific feature like its photo 'Time Shift' capability that allows you to scroll through several captured options for each face in a picture." Yes. BlackBerry is going to run ads that hijack your entire smartphone's display. Sigh.

This is a retarded summary.

Also, repeat after me: ads are good. Why? Because they allow site owners to offer you ungrateful SOBs quality content for free.

Source: I run some sites that were doing really well before the recession solely on advertising money and I hired a lot of talented people to write for them. When the advertising market crashed hard in my country in 2009 I was forced to lay off a lot of people and close said websites.

Hope you like your paywalls, because that's where all this is heading.
